I started a pair of Monkey socks for my mom. I like them......um.....now. See first, they looked like this.
(yes I know that is the most horrible picture ever) Anyway, see that evil pooling? It was hideous! I went through all my gusset decreases before I decided that I could not live with that. So I ripped back to the leg and put in a shortrow heel. I like it much better now. It currently looks like the first picture. Hehe, no pooling! Yay! (it is so funny, but I am just tickled that the cable of my needle actually matches this yarn perfectly...dork, I know)
I received the most wonderful package of yarnie love from a good friend of mine this week. Just look at the haul!
Oh yeah, that will keep me busy for a while. The girls just love some of these yarns. I think I will have to make them some socks! Thanks my friend! Bunches and bunches. Oooh, I have more packages to blog about too, but I will save those for another day.
I've been on a bit of a baking kick this week. Brownies, muffins and then I made this delicious looking strawberry pie today. Yumm, I can't wait for dessert!
I will share if you can get here by 7pm or so.
This is my little monkey:
Pulling a silly face. Awww...I just want to smooch those cheeks some more.
