One Monkey Down

Posted in Accessories, Knitting, Presents at 10:52 pm by Jennie

It’s been almost a month since I ventured into unknown territory. Moving past the plain vanilla stockinette socks and onward towards what seems to be the most knit sock pattern of the moment…Cookie A’s Monkey socks. It really is a quick knit, but I had to put it away for a bit since it dawned on me that I’ve signed myself up for quite a few swaps and exchanges. Eppp. So I had to start some of those projects right away. First up, I really need to finish up socks for my Sockapalooza4 pal. I decided on the Lorna’s Laces Uptown, but it’s not looking as fab as it did all skeined up. I’ll have to post some pics of it when I get a chance so ya’ll can give me some input. And sadly, I really need to get going on the baby blanket that is just lingering in my knitting bag. It’s about more than half way done, but grrr, summer classes and work have just tired me out. I hardly get much sleep time. Which then makes me look like this…. Anywho, here is my one fantabulous monkey…and yes, I did cast on its mate so I could eventually end up with a pair.

Sorry about this drabby pic, but I really wanted to show how the yarn really looks like in real life since my previous pic shows it being brighter.

And last but definitely not least, I want to say a big T-H-A-N-K Y-O-U to Janet for sending me such a great gift. The hand cream is awesome. If ya’ll ever get a chance, definitely check this stuff out. It’s a light cream and soaks right into the skin leaving a nice Verbena fragrance. Plus I get to try out some Gardener’s Hand Therapy. I’ve been wanting to check this stuff out since quite a few people have recommended this stuff on some of the knitting forums.

    I have been dying to try that pattern, but can’t seem to sit down and work on it. After seeing your finished sock though, I might just make the time 🙂
