Upheaval

I'm experiencing extreme work upheaval which is giving me extreme stress so let's look at those Monkey socks that I forgot to post a few weeks back, shall we? Knitting = comfort.

Knit in a one-of-a-kind colorway of Lorna's Laces sock yarn for my mama's birthday. I really loved this pattern. It never got boring and was always nice to see how it emerged with the colors. My mama was pleased (yay!). And I think maybe I'll knit up a pair of these for me next year. Yeah, next year. I've got so many projects lined up that I think my queue won't be in need of filling until sometime next year.

Stalled on Clapotis and a birthday bunny (like this one, if you can see past the whiskers), but I've just been too tired at night to get any knitting done. At least the semester will be over in a few weeks and...all knit, all the time, baby. That is, except for my create-a-thing-a-day-month project but knitting is creation, right? Actually, I've been thinking about the CTDM project (let's just call it that, eh?) and I'm really excited. I'm going to have specific themes for each week and I'm coming up with some good ones.

Hope you have a good one...

It definitely is monkey week this week...everyone is blogging about monkey socks, myself included. I love the soft colors on yours - perfect for spring. Sorry to hear you are so busy at work. Usually when I get like that at work, knitting is a relaxing strategy for me.

thanks, rebecca! i've got the most dreamy malabrigo silky yarn for the clap and i am really determined to get it done in time to wear next fall. we'll see how much knitting happens on it when it gets hot.

raina, it was your blog that reminded me i hadn't posted my monkeys!

I'm excited about it too! I hope your extreme work upheaval calms down soon. Thank goodness the semesters almost over for me too! These past couple of weeks...hmph. wow.

Very pretty! And I'm so jealous that you got to meet Julia Child, but relieved to hear that she was awesome. In my mind, she's one of the coolest ladies ever.
