I finished my Monkey socks:

The photos is pre-blocking.  (I ordered some sock blockers from Webs but they’re backordered and haven’t arrived yet.)  I *love* them.  They are cute and comfy.  I’ll definitely use Cascade Heritage again — it seems to be a more affordable substitute for Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock, my all-time favorite sock yarn

Meanwhile, I also whipped up this adorable (if I do say so myself) cupcake hat:

It’s for a friend who is having her fourth child, her first girl, by surrogate no less.  Since this friend has long wanted a girl, I wanted to find an especially girly pattern.  I think this one fit the bill.  I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes and Swish.

I’ve also been knitting a ton of hats to give to an organization that works with the homelesss.  I’ll post a picture when they’re all done…
