And started a third.
Congrats Tricia!! I'll contact you over on ravelry to let you know that you won the Funky Monkey Sock pattern! Thanks everyone for entering! Hopefully the pattern will be available at Blue Moon shortly! And, the cute new project bag is from Tapmouse! Thanks sweetie!
Hope to catch up on blog reading, sleep, and knitting this weekend!
Debbi certainly played a big role in me going to camp this year and I am so glad I got to hang out with her all week! I can not say enough about how wonderful she and all the sockateers are! I miss her already! Here's her original Funky Sock Monkey in the picture above. The pattern is written for a large monkey like this one and a small monkey (like the ones that you've been seeing around!).
The pattern should be available soon on the Blue Moon website, but I thought one of you lucky readers might not be able to wait so I bought an extra pattern at camp! Let me know if you are interested in the sock monkey pattern in the comments below and I'll pick a random winner this week!
Contest closes Thursday at 6pm PST.
And look at the cute sock blockers that Pashyknits gave me as a belated birthday present! Super cute!! From Leggy Creations and its even personalized! Thanks Pashy!
Oh, and did you notice the pretty new floors and counters in the sock photos! Our condo is a disaster right now (e.g., half the house seems to be in either my room or my sister's!), but it is starting to look great!
Needles: 2.25mm and 2.75 mm
Notes: Love these socks!! They fit so nice and snug too!
Oh, did I show you some of the things I picked up on my trip?!
(l to r) Knitters without Borders (new color benefitting the charity, soon available on the Blue Moon website), Prove it all Night, Scaponia, Eggplanted, Kaw Kaw (special camp color!)
And before you all ask, no that's not all I brought home...but that's all you get to see for now :)
But be sure to stop by tomorrow for some more monkey photos and a chance to win the Funky Sock Monkey pattern (I bought an extra to bring home for you guys!).
Having an awesome time with good friends and making lots of new friends.
And all this fun, might be Tina's fault!
This is the harbor at the resort!
Seriously, the best two days ever! And we're here til Saturday!!
Well, except for the part of the cars being squished in the ferry boat, but I'm over that now!
A good friend asked me today, "Where have you been? I miss you." All with affection, but I responded, "In my car." Its been that kind of week. I had an out of town consultation case that I commuted three days a week this week for and between that and some other work stuff, let's just say 13 hours of driving. Thank God for my ipod! Oh, and our condo is having some remodeling done, so as pretty as part of it looks, my room is a disaster as it has become the storage area and now we get to put our house back together and get ready for the next part.
But really, who cares. Because as of right now...I'm on vacation!!! Going here!
Oh, and I got some purty yarn in the mail for FREE! (well, a trade, but that doesn't count, right Disco, wink wink!).
PigeonRoofStudios, Sport, color Gunmetal
Quick, there is some listed in her Etsy shop. And Woolgirl is having a big sale this weekend, including more colors of PigeonRoofStudios. When Krista contacted me on ravelry about wanting to purchase one of my destash yarns I just couldn't resist asking about doing a trade since I absolutely love her yarns. She offered me a few different ones and I chose this one, sight unseen. And I love it!
Now, the problem with our under construction house is that there is a bit more yarn out and about then usual (I'm usually good about keeping in tucked away hidden). So when Snowboarder saw this on my desk he immediately wanted a Koolhaas in it. Ugh. How can I resist. He wears his hats constantly. But then he quickly saw some Raven Twisted yarn I had out for a project and he wanted that (he so could be a knitter....he's got a color thing!). Either way, I'm working on socks for me right now. He'll have to wait. Shh!
Hope to have a FO to show soon before I leave for vacation Monday!!
Miss you all too!
Happy Birthday Lil' Guy!!
