No time to blog right now. To busy. Everything is coming down the chute at once. 2 weeks from now I'll be sitting at swimming lessons or at home wondering what I should be doing because I feel like I have way too much free time and I must be forgetting something. Until then. No time to photograph yarn or project progress... I am still knitting (King Monkey and Aster) You'll just have to wait to see it.

Super Awesome Monkey Dude.

I finished my sock monkey. He is super awesome and super cute. I am so happy to see him sitting on my couch - amid the unfolded piles of clean laundry. I can almost pretend I don't see that laundry. You should have one. You should make one. No reason not too (except it is the dulldrums of stockinette knitting insanity!!! 90 + rows x 6). I must make some more......

Give me a minute....

So on Thursday I sat watching television and felt inspired to do this:
Kind of ugly. Kind of dorky looking. Kind of splotchy, like a dog with mange.

On the sock monkey progress:

I finished the second arm today and triumphantly held it up! Victory!! But alas! No! The first arm was about 1-1.5 inches longer than the second!! I had just counted the rows on the second so I knew the problem was with the first. I counted rows. No, not 90 like it should be, or course not! It was 100!! Ugh! I unraveled the bottom from the cast on edge (hence the needles in the pic) and have since bound it off. Just ears and muzzle to go and Mr. Ben will done!! The kids are excited, they can't wait to see him! Me too!
I'm totally feeling this.

How about you?
