Happy New Year! First finished object

I finally finished my dad's sweater, and a pair of mitts for my mom for Christmas. I still have a lot of planned gifts to knit, but they are big yarn on large needles, so it should go quickly. I have also started my own video podcast about knitting, spinning, crochet and other fun shit that I love. You can catch it at Twisted Strands. You can also catch it ad-free over at iTunes(and please review or star or subscribe if you like).
I guess I could apologize for not posting more often, but fuck it! There's so much to see and do about crafting on the web, I bet you yarnhoars didn't even notice. But I told you I finished a few things, so here are pictures.
This fucking sweater took me over a year to knit. Dad had a yarngasm at Down Cellar a few years ago during their super bowl sale. I can't blame him, but I was taken aback by the bright green color he chose. You'd think he'd be simply happy with getting the sweater after years of patient waiting, but alas. Now he wants a fucking pair of socks. Great:P

Tonight I finished Mom's convertible mitts in a bright color of red. She loves that color. Here's a picture of mom, wearing her new mitts. Now these? Took me only a week and a half to finish. I'm glad she doesn't want a matching coat or anything.

I have a few other things to ponder while the words appear on the screen, but I still have at least 3 other gifts to knit.
Happy new year!
