I've been right here, yo! Knitting my butt off*, like I'm supposed to be doing, right? I haven't been working on the projects I should be... but who determines what I should be doing anyway? My own conscience, I guess. Damn that cricket!!! Always making me feel guilty for making good progress on "other" things.
My design project (what I "should" be working on) is progressing slowly. Slowly because I have re-fallen in love with sock yarn. I finished one pair of Monkeys and immediately cast on the next pair.
MONKEY 1.0: Fly*Super Monarch in Raspberry Latte; size 2 dpns; a Valentine's Gift for my mom (they're a little small on me)
Here they are doing a little ballet. I never did have the feet for it...
The moment the ends were woven in, I wound up a ball of Socks that Rock lightweight in Red Rock Canyon-- which I purchased in Toronto at Lettuce Knit (it's famous yarn!)-- and cast on a pair of No-Purl Monkeys...
Losing the purl loses nothing for me in the overall effect of the pattern.
And the benefit is that with the added speed of not having to move the yarn around for the purls, I have a sock and a half in 4 days. Unheard of for me. I'd consider this a Hyperknit, wouldn't you Senor?
And I love this colorway!! Go get you some Red Rock Canyon and get HYPER!!!
*an oxymoron, wouldn't you say?
