Some weekend knitting

We traveled up to northern Michigan for a nice long weekend with family. I had about 10 hours of knitting time in the car while my husband did the driving. I am working on this cute little sweater for a future niece or nephew.

Monkey Sock Swap 4 socks-completed

Here are the monkey socks I made for Angela Marie in Oregon. I had fun making them and see that she received them so it is safe to post a picture now. The yarn is called Yummy in a wonderful green colorway. I had a hard time not keeping these for myself because the yarn was so nice and soft.

As always I will look forward to the next swap.

Prettier as a skein

Second Sock Syndrome is going to hit pretty hard with this pair of socks. They did not turn out how I had imagined. Oh well, they are blue so I can wear them with a pair of jeans. Can you see the lighting bolts of black running through the blue? Hmmmm

Monkey socks finished!

My monkey socks will be off to my pal on Tuesday. I have collected a few monkey goodies and had a great time with this swap. I was very happy with the skinny duets yarn. It was very soft and did not split at all. Although, I did run out of yarn but I guess that is why they send you some matching color to do the heels and toes in. Looking forward to Monkey swap 4!

Blurry self portrait

This is what happens when I try to take a picture of myself. I was tagged by Janice for a self portrait. My kids said "come on mom give it your best my space face" I guess I am not hip enough for that.
So now it is your turn. Consider yourself tagged if you are reading this.
