pardon the interruption

this girl can’t get enough of her Monkey Socks

Monkey Socks

CP is sitting on the bench while I work these fabulous Monkey socks.  The pattern is just so easy to memorize and I simply cannot put it down!  I had some of my friends over last night eating takeout, watching football and gossiping.  During all our great conversations my fingers were working on the heel and gusset.  They were joking how I was unable to stop knitting.  I was multitasking! The yarn is fabulous (have you seen Cara’s Super Crazy Fabulous Generous offer?). Go get some!

I knew it was dangerous to cast on for socks.  I was really trying to just focus on one project at a time. (It works better when you have a deadline (Christmas) and when you’re knitting for others.)  When it’s a personal knit you are prey to your inner Ego. (Or is it your ID or your Superego?  Oh I shouldn’t of slept through my psychology class).   I had the yarn, I saw the pattern and that was the end of that.  I would have socks.

This sock will be done before the sleeves of my CP, but I’m still getting a few rows in here and there on it so it won’t lag too far behind.  I’ve also been thinking a lot about the buttons for the hoodie.  I’m worried about going into the city to get some because of the sheer overwhelmingness of it all.  The walls and walls and shelves and shelves of buttons! What if I cannot decide? There’s nothing bad about too many buttons? Right?

There’s still a ways to go so I won’t stress over that just yet.  Today I’ll just keep to my Monkeying around!

    You hear the voices telling you not to go,
    They made their choices and they’ll never know,
    What it means to steal, to cheat, to lie,
    What it’s like to live and die.
    To Prove It All Night.

    The socks are fantastic! In addition to knitting, I bead. Beads are a lot like buttons when it comes to shopping. I think it is very difficult to have too many buttons. After all, you could always change the buttons on your sweater with only a little work to give the sweater a new look (I can rationalize just about anything!). There is nothing to fear in button shopping.

    Oh, your monkey socks are looking fantastic. They are pretty high on my must-knit list, and now looking at yours I keep thinking of that pile of STR sitting in my stash.
    Don’t fear the button shopping. Just do what I do and buy a bunch. Once I get home it doesn’t seem so overwhelming to choose, and the leftovers will always be used on future projects. After all, most buttons don’t cost much. . .
