Mail Call....

My sock kit for McGregor's Garden socks came today.... and lookit the cute carrot stitch marker!
Now here is my problem... do I start the McGregor's? or continue on with the Mock Wave Cable (yes its wavy, but there is NO CABLE in the pattern)
I need focus right now, not another distraction! Must.Focus. (too many things going on- need to get stuff OFF THE LIST for mental calm)

SO, guess what??? Tola came for a visit yesterday!!! Nicole was here too and we had pizza, chips, dip, drinks and YARN. So.Much.Fun. We ate, chatted, knit a tiny bit, chatted more.... really really great. I can't wait to get together again.

Who else is in the area and would like to get together for Knit Night ? (I keep typing knit knight- doh)

Neck Cozy

Wow this was a quick project! I started it Sunday and finished Tuesdy.
Neck Cozy- Ravelry link This is Koigu that Sandra gave me a while ago... the colors are great- green, blue and a splash of purple here and there.
There is still a bit left over, not enough for another cozy, but it gave me an idea... I may have enough of the Fleece Artist Monkey socks left over to do one! (the benifit of having small feet- lots of leftover sock yarn)

Next up:
I got a skein of Spunky Electic Tough Sock yarn in "Time of the Month- Rage, Tears & Chocolate" colorway

sorry for the bad pic- but you get the idea. I wish my skein had more chocolate and less tears- (that would be me) I've started the Mock Wave Cable Socks in Favorite Socks. I wanted a wavy flowy pattern to give motion to the socks- we will see how it works with the colors... but I do love the base yarn, nice and squichy.

meanwhile... I'm weak weak weak. I ordered a McGregor's Garden sock kit from The Woolen Rabbit. I love the colors and the whole idea of bunny ears peaking up from the cabbage patch. I can't wait to cast on- its my version of Spring Fever!

Finished Monkeys

Finally! The rotten sick week was good for something- May I present......
a pair of Monkey socks

I used Fleece Artist Basic Merino in color "Marine" that Trish had gifted me a long time ago (or at least it feels like) I love this yarn! It feels so nice and squichy. I can't wait to wear them to school tomorrow.

**Tola had mentioned in her comment the Bugs Bunny/Daffy Duck "Shoot Me Now" skit- which was so funny since its pretty much how I kept sane last week(much Bugs Bunny references...). M4 had a rough time with Little Cat D as well, and the phone calls would start off with "Shoot Me Now!" rather than "Hello". Gotta love the BFF that shares your sense of humor!

Everyone is back to work this week and I'm keeping my fingers crossed I'll get the Etsy shop updated with a boatload of yarn.

Here is a pic from this weekend.... you never sleep alone in this house. At least it was Maeve (10 lbs) and not Gunnar (80 lbs) this time

Next up: Koigu Neck Cozy (yes, I hate my wattle to be cold)

**Tola! I can't get into your blog anymore! lost password! Help!

Shoot me now...

DH is home sick - he has the FLU.
Please, someone put me out of my misery!

in knitting news... I have finished 1 Monkey sock and already started the 2nd. I'm using Fleece Artist Merino Sock that Trish gave me last birthday... its so nice that I use it as my reward knitting (but obviously have not had too many rewards based on how long its taken me). Now I've bumped it up the que since this is a BAD WEEK.

Pics soon
