What to Knit next

Good afternoon everybody.....

I have finished the booties that I started yesterday and they look fantastic. The pattern said newborn but because I used 8ply wool and 4.oml needles they knitted into a size 2.The size is perfect, my little princess currently has a size 1-2 foot, so therefore she has a little bit of room for growth.
I'm going to start some finger puppets for some children that I know tonight. I have already finished a frog and want to do a chook, cow, pig, dog and maybe goat!!! If they turn out o.k I am thinking of giving some of them to my nephew as part of his birthday present. I'll sew up a little bag to put them in. They are just a great idea for mums to carry around in their bag. They can pull them out when they are in a place where they need to keep the kids quite, like the doctor's surgery, it keeps them amused and stops them from climbing all over everything..... Sometimes.
When I get the courage up I really would love to start these gorgeous fingerless gloves(http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTfetching.html). My sister got me on to the website, they have so many free patterns, it's great... I have never done cables before but my mum told me that they are really easy.... So maybe this is a project to start Sunday night. I have some really nice wool in rich chocolate brown that I have been dying to use and this may just be the project for it.....

  6. Thanks for the offer Jodie but I'm a terrible knitter, I can't even knit a square without losing (or gaining) a few stitches!
