I’d really hoped to show you my completed pair of Monkey socks but I’m not quite done.  So here’s my “almost done” photo:

I’m on the second sock and have about 1.5 repeats left on the foot and then I just have to do the toe.  They are very fun and surprisingly quick.  They’re not done yet because I’ve also been working on other projects, including hats for new babies in our school community and hats I’ll be donating to an organization that works with the homeless.  I’ve also been crocheting a very small (20-square) version of the granny square afghan — made up almost entirely of scrap yarns — for a friend having a baby this spring (the friend who modeled my Kelly mitts — see below for more on that). 

Meanwhile, at a stitch ‘n bitch this week, I inherited copious amounts of a discontinued yarn: Kid ‘N Ewe (thanks, Valerie!):

It’s a light worsted wool-mohair blend in an olive green.  I have more than a sweater’s worth.  Any suggestions of what to make with it?

Finally, I am very excited that my Kelly mitts pattern is in the Knit Picks IDP program — yea!
