Little satisfactions...

Cabling without a cable needle using a deliciously soft Italian made merino-silk blend - Grignasco Champagne.

Finding the right colourway - in a machine-wash and tumble-dryer-tolerant yarn - for a requested pair of socks.

I'm very taken with the baby blanket and the stylish variation on feather & fan.

Is there a pattern, or is it one of yours?

The baby blanket looks beautiful. I like the color of the sock yarn too, nice and bright.

The baby blanket pattern can be found here: http://www.knottygirls.com/jenlablog/freepatterns/Fibercrack.pdf
My only variation was to change the finish to a sideways edging a-la Elizabeth Zimmermann so that the border would maintain some stretch.

Lovely knitting; look forward to seeing how the socks knit up.
