I’m gonna take this opportunity to show off my super cute cute cute cute Monkeys, because even though I didn’t knit them in October, I wore them for the first time yesterday!!!
(I like how this was my “in action” shot – and I was totally lounging on my deck. Nice, eh?)
Here are some more gratuitous shots, since I lerv them so much.
I’m participating in Socktoberfest this year, because with my new KnitPicks sock needles, I NOW LOVE KNITTING SOCKS!!! (I no longer have to worry about breaking my needles!)
I still don’t really consider myself a “sock knitter” per se, because I am a sloooooooow sock knitter (A sock a week? Ha! How about a sock a month?!), but I love having them on the needles. We actually just went to LA this past weekend and I was rushing around before we left trying to figure out which project to bring, and I was first going to bring one of my many scarves I’ve started, but I finally decided to start some socks because they really are the Perfect Portable Project (TM).
But aren’t you swooning??? I love this pattern so, so much! It’s very similar to the Monkeys, but with no purling! And when you’re cabling without a cable needle, it knits up FAST!
The festival starts on October 1st, but you can definitely start on your socks now! You do not have to finish your socks by October 31st either…
Here goes nothing! 🙂
