Monkeys and Ponies and Deer (oh my)

I've finished a pair of monkey socks - yay! I started a pair in a different yarn last fall and for some reason never got more than a couple of pattern repeats into it. I think it was the yarn because this time around, they flew off the needles. I started these socks during the Worldwide Knit in Public outing a week ago Saturday, and finished them on the way to the zoo this past Saturday. I love this yarn. I made them with Sereknity Sock Options yarn in the color "Rock Lobster". The variegation of the yarn is stunning. The pattern itself is so addictive, I've started a second pair already for my mother-in-law.

The ponies and deer were at the zoo, along with many many other animals. The pony ride was the highlight of the day for a certain little girl.

The Boy enjoyed the deer park the best, with the tame little things coming right up to you to eat corn from your hand:

He named this one "Spotty"

I liked the deer too.

OOOOOH Monkeys!!!!!!!!!!! I love them!!
The zoo looks like fun. Now you're making me feel bad because I haven't finished my socks and I started WAY before you, but I have knit a couple things inbetween (teacher towel, a beaded bracelet, a bib) So I guess that's my excuse. :)

The socks are gorgeous! Way to go. It looks like fun was had by all at the zoo. I miss being little enough for pony rides...

You seriouslu suck.

Knitting an ENTIRE pair of socks in one week is just unacceptable...though they are gorgeous...
