About 2 weeks ago, we welcomed a new baby girl into our family! My younger brother and his wife had their second daughter, Brooklyn! I had started a Chevron Baby Blanket for her before she was born, but got sidetracked with a pair of socks for a swap I participated it. More on that later! I finished the socks about a week ago and have been working on this blanket. I'm loving the way it is turning out!
This first photo is from Saturday morning, I started somewhere in the middle of the second grey stripe!
This second photo is from Sunday afternoon, I got a little farther than this photo that evening!
And this is from last night! I have at lease one more repeat to go, grey, lavender, grey, teal, then ending in grey again. Though, I may go for 2 more repeats of the 4 stripes!

I've been working on a a pair of socks for my mom. When I started knitting socks she didn't want any, she said they'd hurt her feet. So I just had to make her a pair anyway, right?!?! Well, she loved them! They were Christmas socks. So that year she put them away with her decorations. And has never been able to find them again. I've always teased her that I wasn't making her another pair. Well, she saw my sock yarn stash (part of it anyway) and asked if she could have a pair out of this very bright (not her style( yarn. So onto the needles it went, I'm making her a pair of CookieA's Monkey Socks. She has seen them so far and loves them! Here is an in progress pi to, I think I'm going to knit one more repeat then start the heals!

As I mentioned earlier, I am involved in several traveling socks. This post is for my October mom's group. If you are in this group and don't want to see your socks, keep moving, don't read anymore!
Here are my toes, started with a bright pink, bright green, orange and red superwash sock yarn!
We are each sending stitch markers for each mom, kind of commemorating the experience! Here are the ones that I made and sent, they are a pink crystal, our babies all, well almost all, have this for a birthstone!
Here are Karen's socks that I added onto with a superwash merino in colorway of storm, I used the pattern Socks on a Plane!
Here are Holly's socks, I used Wildfoote in Lilac Desert, very soft yarn in pattern Love & Liqour!
