This one is for Amy


I have turned the heel on the first Monkey sock and am in the home stretch.  I am trying to finish it up this week, so I can cast on for the second one in time for our camping trip next weekend.

You will notice that it is on dpns...I had knit it using Magic Loop, but one of our new kittens found my knitting bag and used the cable of the circular as a teething ring, and after that the stitches did not slide as well and I had to trash the needle.  Leaving me no option but to knit it old school style.  It hasn't been too bad, actually, I got a replacement circular needle in the mail the other day, but I haven't switched over again.  I'm not sure I will at this point.  I will definitely cast the other one on the new circular needle (a really nice Addi Turbo Lace one, I haven't used them before, so that will be interesting, to see how I like it).

I am still also working on the 2x2 ribbing on my back to school u-neck vest, but that has kind of fallen by the wayside.  I think I am going to cast on for the Elizabeth Bennet Cable Cardigan soon, fall is coming...and I will want that sweater!
