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...
