The Monkeys!

Not your average circus animal socks! You can have a cookie, but not my monkey socks!
The fabulous colorway is Neopolitan by Union Center Knits in fingering weight that I purchased at Woolgirl. The yarn is sooooooo soft!



I followed Cara's modications and added the picot edge, and did five leg repeats (instead of six). I love the picot edge and I still love this pattern!


Bailey jumped into the photo shoot. Maybe she wanted to show off her new haircut.



Speaking of Woolgirl, its official! I might have a Woolgirl problem :) Of course, rather than call it a "problem" she calls it the "Wooly Woolgirl Frequent Shopper Club!" And look at the goodies that are included, for FREE with your 7th purchase.


I love it all! Inside the cute brown bag is a fabulous smelling handmade soap! And that yarn...gorgeous!! So, go order away!!! You know you want too!!

And I'm still catching up on my blog-reading and comments from my vacations and crazy busy week at work. A few answers to some recent questions.... Disco...the Donegal Cashmere did come in Navy, and that lonely skein was a last minute toss in (because how could I not have the blue!). Turtle asked about Spamalot. I enjoyed it more than I thought, considering I'm not all that familiar with Monty Python. I would definately recommend it, especially since you like Monty. Of course, Wicked is one of my absolute favorites, which is why we saw it again, so that would also be on my Must List!

Have a great week!!!

Yum, yum, cookies and ice-cream socks. They are so sweet. They will look cute with your brown dream shoes. Love them. Darn it, now I have to go walk off those photos....

And that woolgirl really knows how to reward her customers. Her bag is cute and all those nifty giftys too, wow! AND the yarn. Oh my. Maybe I just need to go lie down.

Bailey is just to cute.

And I will not become a wool girl. Even though that's the best swag ever. No. I will resist!

I LOVE those Monkey socks! Don't you just love how the Union Center yarn knits up?

I'm so happy that you are now a part of the Wooly Woolgirl club. :)
