A friend of mine has just had a little girl.  Unfortunately I'd managed to mix up her due date with someone else's.  I wanted to knit something for her, so I found this pattern on Ravelry that I thought would be quick.
 http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/keks-booties
They knit up pretty well, although I made a mistake on one of them so the 'join/seam' bit is in the wrong place.  But on the plus side I managed to do grafting in garter stitch, which I was pretty chuffed with.


I sent them off with the tops folded down as I think they looked cuter like that.



I've also just started a new job where I'm doing a year's maternity cover.  I had a month working with the lady I'm covering and she was really nice, so I thought I'd make a hat for the baby.  (My mum thought a summer baby might not need a hat, but we live in Scotland, so I'm sure the baby will get some use out of it).
I used this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/countless-baby-hat.  It turned out really nice and it was a good tv knit - easy pattern to get into the rhythm of.


Here it is laying flat.


And here it is on my hand.  Which doesn't actually show it off to good effect.

I think the first photo shows the yarn best, but it's much brighter than any of the photos show.  I had leftovers of the bright green and thought it was nicely gender-neutral.  It's Drops Baby Merino 4-ply in Vibrant Green.

Any comments/criticism would be very welcome.
