this girl can't get enough of her Monkey Socks
CP is sitting on the bench while I work these fabulous Monkey socks. The pattern is just so easy to memorize and I simply cannot put it down! I had some of my friends over last night eating takeout, watching football and gossiping. During all our great conversations my fingers were working on the heel and gusset. They were joking how I was unable to stop knitting. I was multitasking! The yarn is fabulous (have you seen Cara's Super Crazy Fabulous Generous offer?). Go get some!
I knew it was dangerous to cast on for socks. I was really trying to just focus on one project at a time. (It works better when you have a deadline (Christmas) and when you're knitting for others.) When it's a personal knit you are prey to your inner Ego. (Or is it your ID or your Superego? Oh I shouldn't of slept through my psychology class). I had the yarn, I saw the pattern and that was the end of that. I would have socks.
This sock will be done before the sleeves of my CP, but I'm still getting a few rows in here and there on it so it won't lag too far behind. I've also been thinking a lot about the buttons for the hoodie. I'm worried about going into the city to get some because of the sheer overwhelmingness of it all. The walls and walls and shelves and shelves of buttons! What if I cannot decide? There's nothing bad about too many buttons? Right?
There's still a ways to go so I won't stress over that just yet. Today I'll just keep to my Monkeying around!
