Gift Knitting - Two More Projects Done!

To make sure they fit Shane, I made him close his eyes and try the first one on :) The magazine also has a ladies version of the mitts, so maybe I'll make them sometime with a different yarn.
Last night I finished a pair of socks, I've managed to work on them in front of the husband without him asking me about them, so I think these might even be a surprise! I decided on some basic vanilla socks because they're so quick to knit and nice to wear in the winter. This was another project made from stash yarn, I used 2 skeins of Panda Soy in the Fudge Brownie colorway:
Oh, and if you're thinking, "wait, won't he see his gifts here on the blog?" don't worry, he is forbidden from reading my blog ever for that very reason :)
So how's your gift crafting going?
