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.

I received my monkey swap socks!

I love all the goodies I received from my pal Janice. She did such a wonderful job. The colors are perfect especially for this time of the year. I also received these great monkey slippers to wear around the house to protect my socks. The yarn is STR in a wonderful blue colorway. I have never used this yarn before so I am eager to knit it up. Not shown in the picture were some dried banana chips-which were already gone by the time I took this picture.

Thank you Janice.
