Christmastime is gone

*Lets out a long sigh*

Christmas is over and I have to admit I was a little burned out on knitting so I took a few days off. Being so busy with school caused me to put making all my gifts off until the last minute, putting me in a knitting frenzy most of December. That plus the stress of research papers and finals makes me glad I don't go back to school until the 9th of January.

So today I've posted pictures of some of the gifts I made: hats (including a kitty hat), purses, pillows, and a scarf. Unfortunately the gift giving went a little fast for me and I didn't get to take pics of all the gifts I gave out (mental note: take pics before you give them away!) So next time I see my family I have to take pics of the ballet slippers I made and the earflap hat. Both of which came out great: the earflap hat was done in camo yarn and to make the ballet slippers less slippery I put glue dots on the bottom in the shape of my aunt's name.
I started knitting again yesterday and finished a blue cable hat for myself, which I'll post next time. I also made up a pattern for a Phantom object I want to make for myself since last week marked my two year phan-niversary (the day I was introduced to The Phantom of the Opera and became a phan).
And I am finally almost done with the second panel in my grandmother's blanket! These two skeins of yarn were starting to seem never-ending lol. I'm just trying to focus on this panel being done and not how many more I have to do to fit her full-size bed.

Are the kitty and "pixie" (pink) hats loom knit? Can you tell us how you did them or point us to the patterns if they are elsewhere? :)
