Stealth Projects Exposed!

I owe you an update... I promised you pictures of stealth projects in "late March."  Well, I guess May 2nd is now "late March."  Sure.  Let's go with that.  So here we have the promised stealth projects, as well as the other projects I've completed since.

STEALTH PROJECTS:
My older sister is expecting a baby in a couple months, and these are for my future nephew:

Because I think every little boy needs a "Hobbes" tiger
We're calling this his "hat of many colours."
And for my niecelette, a pair of socks in her favourite colour, "hot pink," to celebrate that she will soon be a big sister:



RECENTLY FINISHED PROJECTS:
1- Bubble Socks that I started back in November and finished during a 12-hour Doctor Who marathon.  (Did you know that you can watch all of Series 5 in 12 hours?  You can.  I know.  Pam and I did  it, and it was awesome.):

2- My second pair Musical Mitts.  (The first ones are here.)  These ones are for me.  I completed these at Knit Camp (Yes--Knit Camp.  Knitters together, all day, knitting.  It was awesome.)



3- Mint Dark Chocolate Socks.  No pattern, just socks.  Finished these while house/cat sitting for a pair of spunky kittens.



4- Beaded bracelet.  I've been wanting one since some of the other knitters made them last year.  Now I want more of them.


5- Easter scarf.  I wanted this for Easter Sunday to go with my cream suit.  It was a close call--I ended up casting-off during choir practice right before church that morning.  I love the pattern.  I wasn't sure about the sparkliness initially, but I was talked into buying it and I'm glad I did.  The pattern is just lovely with this yarn, and it went very well with the suit.  I'm trying to get a picture that captures the actual colours, but haven't been successful.  The colours on it are really fantastic, and what sold me on the yarn in the first place.  It's actually currently blocking, (I wore it unblocked with ends very hastily woven in,) but here's a picture of the lace:


Whew!  With those projects done, I have finished 12 projects so far this year. (Not bad for "late-March!")  Half-way to my goal of 24.
