Baby I love you...

Yup, I have finished something! It's a teeny tiny baby raglan, roughly based on Debbie Bliss Baby Knits again. I adjusted the sizing to work with DK yarn (it was originally in aran) and whipped it up mostly while chatting on Friday night. I can see why so many people knit for babies.... it's immensely satisfying to see it come together so quickly.



I felt a bit at a loss when this was cast off so quickly, so I decided to finish up the classic stockinette car socks. And here's a little montage of them:




Well aware of the sins of the fathers, particularly the tightness of sock A, I increased from 60 to 70 stitches and used 4x3 ribbing. Consequently, this sock fits like a dream. I require a new in-car project now though.

In other news, I have decided to make the Snowflake Socks from Magknits as a Christmas present. This will mean breaking my yarn diet and shamelessly heading to Get Knitted in 2 weeks' time. Against my will of course...

Man, that sweater is sweet (and not just because it looks like ice cream). It really turned out so adorable!!

The socks are fun too! What a great colorway!
