Earlier this week I c/o for the Monkey Socks by Cookie at Knitty. So far they are coming along fabulously! The lace pattern is turning out gorgeous and I’m already working on the heel gusset. My only snag (self-inflicted) is that somewhere while I was turning the heel I ended up with 5 sts left to go on one side and none on the left side. Does that make any sense? You know how when you sl1, k/p x number of sts, k/p2tog and then k/p1? When I attempted to go back so I could fix it, I got confused about which way I was undoing my sts and ended up saying ‘oh well’ and just forged ahead. Luckily it was towards the end so I’m not sure if/how it will affect the fit of the sock. But if I get to the end of my sock and try it on and it feels weird, I won’t feel bad about just ripping it all back to the heel beginning.
This past week it was my anniversary and so my husband and I received cards with some cash in it 🙂 After a (very) short debate we decided to split the money to do with as we pleased. He bought more Warhammer stuff and I found a knit toy book in which I really like 90% of the patterns. It’s “World of Knitted Toys” by Kath Dalmeny. The one I really wanted to buy was “And so to Bed” by Lucinda Guy but at Amazon I could only find used copies and KnitPicks no longer had it in stock. This morning I got an email from Amazon saying that the book I did order had been sent out so I should be receiving it by the end of next week! Yay!
