Gifties to make me feel better!

I am still battling the cold, but feel a bit better. Some of that is because my husband did Valentine's Day a little early. He gave me these before he left for his business trip:

Aww. And then he brought me a gorgeous necklace in this box:

and here it is on:

Lovely, no? It is a Rosselini by Carola Hiersemann (Stuttgart, Germany). I think the colors go so well with lots of my clothes and it will be a joy to wear. What a wonderful hubby!

And just to touch on the knitting, I have made very little progress since I have been too tired at night. I did get a few of the back issues of Interweave Knits that I bought off of ebay. The Summer 2000 had a GGH pattern in it:

Look familiar? The Weekend Knitting poncho pattern designer said that she took the pattern from a German pattern and added the baby cable--this must be the pattern. And, it has a hat. Since I have 2.8 skeins of yarn left over, I think I might alter the ribbing of the hat and make the hat. Neat!
