Monkey sock goodies and more October 3, 2007

What wonderful goodies my monkey pal sent me!  I have worn the socks twice now.  They don’t slip down and fit wonderfully!  The monkey sock swap was lots of fun.  Speaking of the swap, I finished socks to send to my pal. I ordered the pattern for the package today and I’m just waiting for the note card I purchased on etsy to arrive and then I can send her package out.  I can’t seem to take a good picture of the socks I made, I will try again tomorrow.

A few weeks ago I bought Cat Bordhi’s new book I have made the first two practice socks.  They are fitting right into my need for baby socks for gifts.   I was getting a little bored with the basic rib pattern I had been knitting

I’m still working out picture placement and sizing with wordpress, but the socks sure are cute!

I made an online shopping trip to Bluemoon Fiber Artstoday and purchased a pattern to send in the monkey swap package, and my first Socks that Rock!  I’m very excited to recieve the package.

My first instalment of the Hill Country Yarns sock club came a few weeks ago.  Included was a beautiful skein of periwinkle hand dyed yarn and a nice lace sock patten. I just started knitting the patten, but with some treking that has been waiting to be used for several months.

    Hey Amy,
    Just wanted to tell you how sorry I was about your kitty. My Bailey died suddenly about three weeks ago,which made me quite sad.

    I am busily knitting and quilting for Christmas! Happy Thanksgiving!
