i had a good time yesterday hanging out with a couple of knitty-friends, as we took a little road trip down to bella filati. yesterday was the first day of their summer clearance sale. i spent the ride knitting, of course, on a fresh socken. i can't get enough of the monkey socks! this is my fourth sock knitted (though i've only completed one pair).

the yarn is koigu, though i couldn't tell you what colorway, as it was gifted to me, already wound into little balls with no tags. we'll call it greens & blues variegated.


of course, i don't think i've ever left a yarn store empty handed ... these wee balls of panda cotton came home with me ... for socks (duh!).

there were lots of great deals to be had on sweater quantities of yarn ... but i guess after the (still unfinished) moving of furniture and stash monday, i could not even think about bringing home a fat bag of yarn. tragic, i know.

I need a mascot like stewart. How long of a sock did you start with for him? I was looking through my sock creature book last night.

Have you made a trip to the shop in Hillsborough? I want to try that one. I haven't ben to Bella in over a year.

The new monkey sock is great of course!

Love that Panda Cotton, and I'm not surprised that Stuart couldn't resist its tiny lovliness....

the monkey is coming along great - car rides are a great place to get good chunks of knitting done!

they must have had some great stuff at that sale -i'm impressed you only walked away with those 2 little balls....
