It's A Long Weekend - More Knitting Time!

It seems like I haven't finished anything in a long while, but here's one done at last. For the Socktopia April theme of "Orange You Glad I Didn't Say Banana?"

These were knit up in Scout's Swag "Fruit Salad", a simple wrn cable (yarn over cable). I'm making some excellent progress on my Zen sock, and another somewhat lacey one in Spritely
Goods Fey fingering - forgot to take a picture, though!

I think the pink and green in these will qualify for a Project Spectrum FO, as well :).

I finished my "Monkey Socks" a few weeks ago, but haven't been the most inspired with my blogging, so while I'm feeling chipper, pithy and all that, here is a picture of the finished pair.

I know I've already raved about the Zen String yarn (this was a club colour) but I have to again. The "Bambewe" is so heavenly to knit with, great stitch definition, glowy sheen. I have a chocolate cherry colour on the way, and I can't wait for it to get here.

I do have, more Yarn Pr0n this week. And hopefully, my Book Pr0n will arrive soon to use some of this up :)!

I did finally buy More Sensational Knitted Socks, I love the template format, it's so easy to use. I have a couple of lace books coming and Favourite Socks from Interweave too.

I may soon find it hard to live up to my own Yarn Pr0n Goddess status - 'cause if DH sees one more squishy packet in the mail, I may be in trouble! Here's what I was able to sneak into the house...

Left are the few skeins I couldn't resist (details if you click the picture). And on the right, my sock club packets. The top one is my last installment from Sundara Yarns Petals Collection (the club is continuing, but in a slightly different format). The lower one is my first Loopy Sock Club and definitely not the last! Both are just fabulous (you can click this one for details too).

Things are brightening up here, the new job contract is going well and DS may have decided that life is worth grabbing onto after all. Thank goodness for knitting, best stress-reliever I know of!

Karin, those monkey socks are great! I know why you love Sundara yarn. I have some worsted cashmere/silk in my stash that I'm saving until I figure out what it wants to be. It's gotta be something special. I feel like I've have a trip through a really good yarn shop after I look at your pictures. :-}
Were you gone? JUST KIDDING! Love your socks, especially the Monkeys.
