Ta-da! Finally FO!
Aren't they lovely? I especially like how the Gypsy Girl Creations striped on the heel.

It's been a pretty busy week for me. Crazy things happening at work, sort of like a circus only no clowns...oh, wait, maybe some of the players would qualify as clowns, ROFL. We're having a domino-type moving experience on two of the three floors we occupy in the building. Sales types are moving down 2 floors and programming types are moving up to the floor where the business offices are...this should be interesting...if not downright chaotic. I'll let ya know in a few weeks. I'm moving to more desirable digs in an alcove, all-by-my-self. Ahhh, the atmosphere...you probably had to be a Discovery Channel fan to get the reference, sorry.
Knitting like crazy this week trying to get the Monkeys finished, I got newly motivated when I heard that Cookie A is coming to CK in October to teach some classes. I got myself signed up for the toe-up class and I know it will be loads of fun.
I knit the first lace repeat of the Marialis Scarf from 101 Designer One Skein Wonders. I was feelin pretty proud of myself for whippin out that lace so fast when my little friend Patrick, who's 12, showed up at City Knitting this afternoon. I asked if he could give me some pointers on getting a size 10 needle into the size 4 stitches to bind off the provisional cast on end, and he, not-so-gently, pointed out that I should have done 8 rows of seed stitch after said provisional cast on...gah! I'll be starting that over again this week. I was wondering how I was supposed to cast off the provisional end in that lace pattern, lol. Sometimes I have difficulty reading a sufficient amount of the instructions before beginning...
And here's my very own Ring of Cable hat. I've been wearing it to work every day for a couple of weeks and it's nice and toasty. I like the fit too. Whatchu think?
It was ever so much fun to wear my ASJ to CK today. I'm amazed at how much people like the colors in the sweater. Guess I'm jaded from looking at it so long during the knitting process. Thank you all for helping pick out the colors. You're the best!
I'd like to thank those of you who have been stoppin in or hangin around for about 102 posts here. It's been a true learning experience. I feel I've grown socially and gained loads of knitting skills. I appreciate each one of your comments and words of encouragement.
Everybody have a great week and git ta knittin!
