Monkeying Around!

I finally finished my 'Puzzled Monkey Socks'. I started off by actually wanting to make a pair of no purl monkeys but ended up going toe up and then offsetting the pattern. I like the way it undulates (what a cracking word)up the leg.

I used TVYarn in Casablanca colourway (this is koigu base yarn - fingering merino) and 2.5mm addi em!!

Proof that Plastic doesn't rot...

Oh yes...this was dug up in our garden at the weekend. That bottle has got 6d off the price, yup 6d - not 6p!!!! It's got to be roughly as old as me at any rate ;)
I've decided to keep it, it's only item in the house that hasn't got an email address on it...:D

The 'C' list has started....

Well it's start...the dreaded 'C' word will be upon us before we know it and I now have one present sorted! yay go me! and it's from stash *halo polishing as I type*

Urchin by Ysolda and a cowl of ones own creation but kinda copying Ysoldas Urchin short row effect, ok, ok, - I mean inspired by ok! ;)
I have used 7mm needles for both and made the medium sized Urchin. The yarn is Colinettes Prism in Monet colourway. I have also nearly finished a second Urchin out of the 2 skeins I had...i'm happy!

I really like this pattern and it will feature quite heavily lol

next up will be scarves, again from stash and I was supposed to be making a hot water bottle cover...I will, i'm sure someone needs one. :D
