More Monkey's

I love Monkey's. I loved my first pair so much that I had to have another pair. I decided this time to change them a little and I made them shorter and also with a picot edge instead of the standard ribbed cuff. So far I just have the first one done, but I am loving this one too! Cookie A. was right when she said that this pattern was addictive. The yarn is Fleece Artist Merino in the Sea Storm colorway. I just have to cast on the second right away, I can't wait to wear these babies. I really should be knitting my sock pal's socks, but I just can't seem to decide on a yarn or a pattern. I initially planned on using the bamboo yarn that I recently bought, but I really don't like it, and the way it knit up. It was very slippery and really splitty. I'm sure I'll find another project for it, but definitely not lace socks. I have a few ideas but nothing concrete yet. Lots of time yet, and being the procrastinator that I am I will put them off till the last minute! I seem to be going through a "I only want to knit for me" phase. I am also working on my second Ariann sweater - for me.

Yesterday we went for a drive to see the icebergs. There are so many! No wonder it's so cold around here!

Nice job with the Monkeys! I still have not made a pair of these but they have infiltrated the blogosphere so hard I think it is only a matter of time before I make some. Soon! Soon!

Nice Monkeys!

Icebergs! I have got to get up north so I can see some for myself.

I think the Monkeys will be my next pair of socks for me, but I think that I'll use a variation of my own pattern for my sock pal. The thought of Sea Wool kind of makes me woozy with desire, and I have yet to feel any in person! What an amazing country we live in - rainforest, prairie, desert, forest... and icebergs!
