my creative space.

as per usual, i've been doing lots of knitting in my space this week.

i finished off the ribby red socks for my cousin...

i love how they've finished up AND i'm happy to say, they fit as well!
maybe this swatching thing IS a good idea ha ha!

i'm hoping i'll get to hand deliver them on my day off next week.

i've also been working on putting the finishing touches on my cape. grafting the last few stitches, sewing in ends, contemplating blocking and buttons. all of the fun stuff.

and in the leftover times, i've been knitting back and forth baby blankie rows in a sweet little chevron pattern.

i love the way this is coming together, and especially the non-traditional baby colour. i do like non-traditional baby colours ha ha!

what are you creating this week? what are your favourite colours to knit baby things in?

Socks are awesome and bonus, they fit! This swatching lark, eh?! ;)

I love a good chevron too, and non-trad baby colours are the best. I like magenta with turquoise for either gender, as well as loads of others. Your blanket is a beaut!

Love the colour and the pattern on those socks. Lucky cousin! Blanket looks magnificent and very snuggly.

Socks that fit?! What a perk! That chevron baby blanket looks like it involves lots of concentrating and counting of stitches!
