This is my Monkey. Bye bye, Monkey. I couldn't make myself keep going on it. I didn't like the way it looked. I'll use this yarn for a plain sock.Ooh! Look what I have!
The big one is Fortissima Socka (couldn't resist the name) - wool, bamboo, and nylon. It's self-patterning for a regular sock. Can't wait. Then, would you look at those 4 little skeins. They're so cute! How could I resist? Couldn't. The two in the front are mandarin petit in a periwinkle blue color - all cotton, I think. Can't understand the label, but I think the LYS owner said it was cotton. The two in the back are Crystal Palace Yarns Panda Wool in Ultramarine - bamboo, wool and nylon. I think I'm going to become a sock yarn junkie. I'm going to try to force myself to finish the Irish twin before I cast on for anything new, but I can't make any promises. I'll try.
In non-knitting news, look what UPS brought for me today:
They're Magic Drawers from QVC. The boxes stack on "rails" that allow one box to slide out without all the others falling over. They work really well and I was able to fit all of my shoes in them, with a few boxes still empty. Left me with a lot more room in my closet. Happy!
