Today is the first of the month, so it's time for a Project of the Month bag. This month we have......
Monkey socks. I'm hoping the pattern helps cope with the stretchiness of the yarn. It's 7% elastic, which in the sock world means that sock & foot are likely to part company after a few hours of wear. Apparently no one else had better luck with this yarn as it has now been discontinued, but I think there are still 4 more skeins of the stuff in my stash after this. If this sock pattern doesn't help, I'll use the remaining skeins for baby hats, since even if the hats are just as obnoxious as the socks, babies aren't going to complain--or at least not to me.
My little sidekick was a bit sulky when I first came back from my trip, but since he forgave me, we've been inseparable. Yesterday we cut out more mittens
In need of a faster project--and coincidentally needing a birthday gift for a friend's birthday on MONDAY, my sidekick and I are working on a bag today--Theo's part being to make cutting the material out difficult
