Monkey See Monkey Blue
I finished my Blue Monkey Socks. They are love-ly.
I made a little progress on some of my WIPS too. However, I think I am going to be ripping out three of my WIPS. The Fawkes sock in STR Firebird is totally the wrong gauge, I will never get a sock out of this yarn on size 2 needles. The Regia Bamboo socks are much looser than I like, the stockinette is almost lace. I like my stockinette nice and tight.
I love my roadtrip socks. STR Heavyweight knits up so wonderfully. The Minestone colorway held a few surprises, I like it.
I need to rip out my Gansey Sock too, fast and wrong!!!
Bellatrix is still on track, Victorian Lace is on hold and I need to rewrite Nagini cuff down before I cast on. Somewhere in all this I want to get a few more repeats of my Canopy Shawl done. It is so pretty. I really am enjoying the pattern. I have a few yarn orders in route, some lovely Wollmeise colorways from Germany and some Ravenclaw striping yarn from Australia.
