That's a Frostrosen mitten kit from Nordic Fiber Arts. In the charcoal and light grey colorway. I wasn't sure it was within my current knitting skills (having never done two color knitting before) but I decided to just dive in, in my typical fashion, and it's fun! Addictive! I did about 4 inches in one sitting. Seems to be coming out fine.
I also received this from my parents...
It's Knitpicks Options needle set. So, I am all set, needle wise. No more searching for a circ I may or may not own. No more waiting to start a project until I run to the yarn store to get a particular size. Nope, I've got them all, and they are all in a nifty case.
