I like the colourway of the Monkey socks. It is Cherry Tree Hill Sockittome in Spanish Moss. The picture really doesn't do it justice. I love the feel of this yarn, it is really soft and nice to work with.
The shawl is being knit (slowly) in a grey yarn that was in my girlfriends stash. We decided to put beads on it. I like the effect. The beads are along the neck and will be put in the edging too. I really like this pattern. It's very quick and easy to knit. Although I still can't be in a really crowded place as I do still need to concentrate on it!
I have finished another project...my knitting bag. It is by Sheepstrings and is done in CabinFever's yarn. It was one of my first felting projects. I REALLY love it and have had alot of comments on it. I think the Pin really finishes it!
As I am sitting here at my computer, my sleeping beauty of a dog just woke up. The rest of the house has been up and gone for 3 hours, but he has been sleeping in my daughter's bed. Every time he gets up, he does his yoga stretches. His name is Tiger and he's a 5 year old english bull terrier/ greyhound cross. One of the laziest dogs on the face of the planet! He has to sleep UNDER the blankets with his nose in tight!
Well, I have had enough of a break I am off to look for the gifts again!
