creative space :: knitty love

For the first time in quite some time I've got the knitty bug!

I really haven't thought much about yarny things much for ages, but came away from last weekend's Brown Owls super keen to get the sticks clicking again (I'm putting it down to being inspired by gorgeous knits my owly friends have been working on!)

So in my creative space this week is the cute baby cardi I started on Sunday arvo - it's a free pattern called Little Coffee Bean (from the Brown Stitch) and I'm knitting it up in Jet.

I didn't have the right size dpns for the sleeves, but luckily my friend Suzy Hausfrau stocks these lovely little Brittanys in her online store.  And the $10 voucher I had for filling in the survey on Suzy's blog was the perfect excuse to get the beautiful Close  Knit Gang, by MillaMia, which I have had my eye on since I borrowed a copy last year!
Happy knitting times! =)
