Monkeying Around

Yep, that's what I worked on last night. I picked up the poor forgotten monkey sock and finished the first one. I almost immediately cast on for the second if it wasn't for the fact that I had determined to get my butt up early this morning and exercise before going to work. So, I went to bed at 9 and woke up at 5:30 this morning. I actually exercised, which is scary in itself, and I'm not too tired right now. I am longing for my first cup of morning tea which is brewing right now, but not needing it necessarily.

Anyways, here's a finished Monkey sock:You really can't see that much of the striping in the actual sock. That's a flash effect for you unfortunately. Here's the sock on my foot:I can't get over how good this fits. It is snug, like the jaywalkers, but fits better on my foot than the jaywalkers do. It's a really nice pattern, works up fast, and seems to be not too lacy for my liking.

Anyways, tonight is SnB, so hopefully I'll get some more monkey work in and will have a finished pair of socks this week. I really want to cast on with the Kauni yarn I picked up at the swap, but I'm forcing myself to finish a couple of projects on the needles right now. Namely both pairs of socks, which are both 50% done now.

To answer Emily's question about the miters, they have gone on stand still. I think it's going to be one of those things that I'll work on when I want a change or need to get a groove back again. They are addicting though, which is why I stopped them cold turkey in favor of the socks :oP

Knit on...

So, if I go back and comment on every blog entry, will I get another entry for the handspun, or is it one entry per person? :O)
