Happy Birthday to the Triplets!

My friends have triplets that will be turning 5 on Monday. In celebration of their birth and my new knitting skillz I made them birthday gifts. (Ok, so maybe I'm not good enough to merit the z yet, but I'm trying.) All three of these patterns came from New Knits on the Block, and all three of them were pretty easy.

Sorry about the blurry picture, trust me it looks pretty much the same when it is not blurry.

The fireman's hat didn't felt quite right so it kinda has a animated Dr. Seuss shape, but if the Cat in the Hat wanted to fight fire, this is what he'd be wearing.

This one was the hardest. Not because it was really hard , but because the pattern in the book was wrong. I didn't have any trouble finding the corrections, but I did have to frog from about the shoulders back to the beginning.

Lookee me! I'll be in there before you know it. There are 14,000 people behind me. Just what I need right before the semester starts -- a new website to fuss over. Since fussing over cool new free web applications is What I Like Best, I cannot wait. But my classes may suffer. Do you think a Ravelry disclaimer on my syllabi is in order?
