Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except for Me and My Monkey* (socks)

Okay, are you expecting pictures of a fully-completed Hourglass sweater? Sorry to disappoint, but it's currently drying on a towel in my bedroom, and I thought a modeled shot would make a bigger impact. Instead, I will share some photos of my in-progress Monkey Socks from the latest Knitty. I do love Cookie's patterns. The Hedera socks are probably my favorite socks to wear. I am going to be giving these socks to my awesome mother-in-law. Since she dresses a bit conservatively, I needed a solid color yarn. Gloss from Knitpicks really fits the bill here. The yarn is wonderful to work with, sumptuously soft and silky.

I can’t resist the urge to post a photo of my very first adult-sized sweater, so here’s a tease. Modeled shots plus all the details will be on the next post.

Oh, and here's a tip, don't try to blog during an ice storm. You'll end up retyping your post ten times. Guaranteed.
