Quick Update

I finished my socks ... but the pic I took of them is not that great ... Then, to make matters worse ... the first time I wore them ... I left them on the couch when I went to bed ... When I work up the next morning ... one of the socks was gone! The cats must have taken off with it!!!! And I still haven't seen anything of it ... :( Don't even want to think about that ...

Anyhow ... I'm working on a pair of socks in the Monkey pattern. I'm doing mine toe-up on one circ, two at a time ... I'm really liking doing my socks like this!

I always started a blog for a knit-along for these socks. If you're interested, you can join here. Just leave a comment with your e-mail address, and I'll send an invite out to you as soon as I can ...

Hi Phoenix, In answer to your question about the 72 stitch Monkeys, a friend of mine charted it for me, but basically, you just add one stitch to each side of each motif and then do what comes naturally. I think it adds 1 row to each motif, and of course, adds 8 stitches to make it 72 instead of 64. I don't think they would have fit had I done them on less stitches because they wouldn't have gone over my arch. Looking at them, you wouldn't realize anything was different.

Hi there,

You left me a comment on my blog asking if I had already bought the Victoria spinning wheel. I did! The girl I bought it from is an independent dealer of Louet and lives in San Diego by me. I took a spinning lesson from her and she told me that she had 3 of the Victoria wheels in stock and that they were $525. I wasn't sure if that was a good price until I went searching on the internet and found out that it was an awesome price and that I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get it. Even though I'm just now learning how to spin, I figured, I could still sell the wheel for what I paid for it if I didn't love it. So I called her and she's delivering it to my house tomorrow. :)
