Did you ever have a blog post title so perfect you couldn't wait to post it? That's me today! I finished my Monkey Socks from Knitty, done in STR in, what? I can't recall the color. Smoky Topaz I think. Smoky some type of rock.
These were fun to make, it's a complex enough lace pattern (lace! lace!) that you don't get bored but it's not so hard you can't lose the plotline in, say, Law and Order. Toward the end there I could even knit them during "The Wire", but that's only because I was doing the foot and I used plain stockinette for the foot.
I had a moment of panic last night because I finished my cotton-easy sweater too and I was at that 'what next?' moment...I really didn't have anything new planned! Hard to believe. However, i designed a pair of sox in my head last night (aran pattern) and also a new felted bag so I'll be starting on those! Stay tuned!
