Finally! My Monkey socks, now named Not-So-Monkey Socks, are done. These are called Not-S0-Monkey socks because I made them toe-up (the pattern is a top down). I thought I was being clever by reversing the chart and knitting the chart from the top down instead of the bottom up. Didn't work. These are a vague resemblance to the Monkey sock, but I like it all the same. LOVE the yarn- did I mention that? Periwinkle Sheep Watercolors sock yarn in Fresh Lavender.
I visited my mom over the weekend and worked on her cashmere socks. Have one almost done, so the pair should be ready by the cold weather. It was a nice visit to Connecticut. We went to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, Bricco, in West Hartford. I had a fig, gorgonzola and prosciutto pizza. Oh. My. Gosh. So good. We also hung around at a bookstore for a while -- another one of my favorite things to do. My mom was so nice and treated me to Janet Evanovich's newest book, Finger Lickin' Fifteen. Love her books - so funny!
Next project, a dog sweater for the demonstration at the Altamont Fair!
