I have nearly finished the present for our friends' baby (due next week!). With the wool I had left from the little pullover I made a little hat, as you can see on the photos! So the gift set is nearly ready... I wish I could find more of the same wool in BCN, because I would have loved to make matching bootees and mittens... I might make some anyway, but in another colour. You can see the set on my very scary real-size baby doll! ;-)
I have also nearly finished the scarf (ruffles) for J's sister's birthday... I needed the knitting needles (I only have one pair of UK size 5.5 knitting needles) for the little hat (more urgent!) so I have put the stitches on a stich holder for now... I am beginning to think that it is long enough now anyway... I have another ruffles on my "waiting list" (along with at least two pairs of bootees!) so perhaps I should just get started on that! I bought two 100gr. balls of Sherpa by Katia yesterday for the new one.. I really like the colour.
We're off to Rome for a romantic weekend on Friday to celebrate our 5th "being together anniversary" so I doubt I will get away with a lot of knitting... but you never know, I might slip some needled in JUST IN CASE! ;-)
