One less mortgage

So, I've had some interest on the fingerless mitts from the last post. That FREE  pattern will be coming.

Yesterday we closed on the Valpo house. It now belongs the a lovely young couple, and we are less one mortgage.  The first thing I did when we got home was I got out December's mortgage bill and tore it up into tiny mortgage confetti. It was great. We had been spending a quarter of every paycheck on the Valpo house, and we had been doing that for over a year. It's a very good feeling not to have that expense anymore.

While up north, I knit Jess a new hat.

Pattern: Hermione hat by Lauren Kent

Yarn: Arucania Nature Wool

Jess has been working on her own Christmas project.

That's about half of it.  She's been busy.  So, what's she up to? I can't tell yet.

    Love the purple hat (but you knew I would).
    I give up. Is she organizing your stash for x-mas?
