i'm hungry

i got up at the crack of dawn this morning to prep for dinner. i'm having people over after my game, so i need to be able to throw the meal together fairly quickly. this means that i ate breakfast an hour earlier than normal and now i'm STARVING. and of course i forgot my snacky snacks at home. woe is me.

anyway, here's a craptastic pic of the monkey socks. i'm up to pattern repeat #4. things are rolling smoothly thus far.
Monkeys in progress

i had a chat with indigomouse yesterday. she's getting ready to start brooklyn tweed's hat in knitpicks telemark. her post led me to remember that i too bought the same yarn to make that hat, but i wanted to wait to cast on until i finished all stranded projects in progress (ie: the neverending mittens of doom). i think i might be ready now, so i'm hoping to work on this in tandem with her starting next week-ish. i'd like to finish my mom's socks first, so we'll see how it goes. i haven't nailed down my color choices yet, but the hat will be spicy's 2007-2008 winter hat. he told me a few months ago that since i made him shedir, he's set for life, but that is just crazy talk. i get a new hat every year, why shouldn't he?

There's still plenty of time to enter the contest. so far, only three people have submitted entries, so your chance of winning is currently very good.

  1. Whenever I think of the name of BT's hat pattern, I think "Red Light District" instead of "Red Light Special." Is it just me? It conjures an image of prostitutes sporting fair isle hats. LOL. I think we need a button.
