monkey love


this was my best gift of the year. my mom crocheted me a monkey! isn't she cute? she followed (mostly) the instructions from this leisure arts booklet. i tacked the little shoes with some sewing thread, and there's a stitch marker holding the hat to her head.

a very sweet friend gifted to me 3 balls of kidsilk spray. of course, i wanted more, and bought 2 more balls. i want to knit this with it. it should only take 4 balls of the yarn, but it's always a good idea to have one extra. i'm almost finished knitting my mohair boucle wrappy wrap, which does not photograph well. i am also half way through knitting the strips of my jo sharp throw. (and, i think i'm going to run out of yarn of one of the colors on that one. oops.)

there's plenty more to show-n-tell, but i'm tired, it's late, and i want to go read in bed. ps pinky, i'm not reading smut!

Hey girl! I have that stole pattern if you want it... I don't think I'll ever use it.

I hope you are enjoying your socks. I bet you thought I'd never give them to you!
