Secret Pals REVEALED

So my first Secret Pal adventure draws to a close. My spoilee, Michelle, received her package. There were gifties for all 2-legged and 4-legged family members. I'm not sure if the knitted gift I made is, well, an asset or just an oddity. I admit that, when I started them, I had the best of intentions. But sometimes reality doesn't follow intentions. I think what I succeeded in making were "alien mittens." What I was TRYING to accomplish was a pair of glittens -- when mittens and gloves collide. Okay, here's a picture. Stop laughing.
They are stuffed with plastic bags so that they'd dry blocked to shape. Please.....STOP LAUGHING ALREADY! The top one is the right-hand glitten, and your looking down on them as if your palms are down on the table. I didn't design these (thank God); I got the pattern from Knitting in the Round, edited by Jeanne Stauffer. I knitted these using one long circular needle instead of double-pointeds. I must say, Michelle handled their presentation with tact and grace here.

And I received a final package from my secret pal, Erin! It was full of wonderful things! Opal sock yarn (yayyyy!), a really nifty tape measure with tea party graphics, sock-shaped point protectors, chamomille and thyme scented stitchers hand cream (very appreciated!), cinnamon candy and candles, cute notepads, and for my "catkinderlach" (yes, I just made that up) there's a container of yummy Whisker Lickins treats. Why, I do think Mickey definitely approves.

Thank you, Erin, for being my secret pal and sending such wonderful gifts!
oh honey i'm so glad you (and the kitties) like your stuff! and i'm glad i can stop stressing out about trying to remember to leave comments as yarnball and not erin!!! much love.
