Check out my new sock!

I'm knitting the Monkey pattern from Winter 2006 Knitty. Don't ask me why they are called Monkey socks. I guess this is a question for Cookie A. Cookie if you are out there, let me know! This is the second time I've knit these socks; the first time they came out terrible. So here I am trying again! I knit on these while @ SnB tonight; here's a pic of the sock after I turned the heel.

More Yarn Porn and a few FO's!

I did a little more naughty yarn shopping this past week. Check out my new yarn! Of course there is beautiful Noro and Mano's Silk Blend. The red is a new yarn, or at least new to me; it's Cascade Sock Yarn. And the pink is Cherry Tree Hill in Blossom. It's so pretty in person; this is a very bad pic of it. I also finished a Headline News-boy Cap as described in Stich N Bitch Nation. The Gelato socks are complete also, I had to show them to my buddies @ SnB tonight.

If you don't recognize this cap; it's because I left the brim off of it. I thought I would like it better as a beanies but in actuality; I don't. So I'm going to go back and add it. I'll take another pic of it soon. Thats all for now kiddies! Happy Knitting!

Shopping, shopping, shopping...

I've been doing a little yarn shopping in the past week or so. I bought some of that Red Heart Heart & Sole sock yarn (with ALOE!!!). I haven't had a chance to knit it up yet but heres a pic of it anyway.

I also visited AC Moore and picked up some Lion Brand Cotton.

After that, a trip to Cultured Purl and picked up some more Noro Kureyon sock yarn in a very pretty pink color.

Thats all for now I guess. I plan to head to the yarn shop in Waterford later this week. Wish me luck!

I'm still alive here knitting away! Here's a pic of my newest knit; the Gelato sock. This is the sock yarn from the previous post I bought from Knit Picks. I'm not sure if it is still on the site available for purchuse. I haven't checked. I love the stripes and how they work up. I find myself knitting on the second sock thinking; I'll just finish this color. Oh I'll just get to the end of this color. Whatever. Enjoy!
