And Then This Happened

On Thursday I took sock yarn to work to start on my November socks. I decided on a pair of Monkey socks, and immediately cast on during lunch. I left them at work for my lunch knitting, a much needed break every day.

Thursday evening Mr. Ink and I settled down to watch a movie. Spinal Tap actually, which I’d never seen but was hilarious. I had decided that what I really wanted to knit while watching a movie was a pair of monkey socks, except that I didn’t have my work pair at home. So I grabbed another set of needles and another skein of yarn and cast on.

Overnight I came down with some sort of short lived stomach bug. Or ate something off, not sure which. In any case, I was awake most of the night and in no shape to go to work the next day. I woke up, did Bug’s hair for school, called in sick, and went back to bed, not waking up until 11. After that, I wandered out to the couch and picked up my at home monkey sock. I worked on that for quite awhile, and after Mr. Ink came home, we watched another movie last evening since I wasn’t in any shape to do anything else.

Today? I kitchenered a toe on a monkey sock. I dunno, do we consider these my November socks or my December socks? Not entirely sure!


For the record, this is Sheepaints silk bamboo, a combo of wool, silk, and bamboo. And after this skein? I’ve still got two more skeins of the same colorway in my stash. I dunno what I was thinking when I purchased it way back in, maybe 2008? But, it is quite pretty, I like the color a lot.
