The Bug is a Monkey

Well, she has Monkey socks anyhow.  I finished her pair.  This is good since she is growing out of her current hand knit sock stash, and she really does like them.

The final picture is one she took herself, it really was the only way I could get her to let me have a photo.  She was far more interested in going to bed.

Now that these are done, I can work on my yellow mystery socks.  They aren’t much of a mystery anymore since the clues have come out and I now know what they look like.  I guess now they are just a mystery to you!

What is it? What is it for? Episode 1

Since I don’t have a lot of interesting knitting to post, and not much to say quite frankly, I thought I’d start a new line of posts.  When I post one of these, I am either uninspired to take pictures, or at a point where picture taking would be boring for you.

This is Berroco Lustra.  I believe it is a new line from Berroco.  Worsted weight with the addition of tencel to the wool which makes it shimmer and gives it depth.  I picked it up at stitches midwest from the Webs booth.  It comes 197 yards per hank.  I chose this because J often complains of the lack of depth of color in the wools I choose.  I just didn’t think he could complain about this yarn, though I haven’t shown it to him yet.

What is it for?  It is for a Spartan Pullover. I thought J would like this design. He wanted a gray sweater, but as is typical for me, I could not resist the addition of red.

No, I don’t really know when I’ll get started.  It has been a very busy week and I cannot manage much beyond sock knitting.  So it may be awhile.
