Monkey Socks for my mom

I've been working on a a pair of socks for my mom. When I started knitting socks she didn't want any, she said they'd hurt her feet. So I just had to make her a pair anyway, right?!?! Well, she loved them! They were Christmas socks. So that year she put them away with her decorations. And has never been able to find them again. I've always teased her that I wasn't making her another pair. Well, she saw my sock yarn stash (part of it anyway) and asked if she could have a pair out of this very bright (not her style( yarn. So onto the needles it went, I'm making her a pair of CookieA's Monkey Socks. She has seen them so far and loves them! Here is an in progress pi to, I think I'm going to knit one more repeat then start the heals!

October mom's traveling socks! - Spoiler for sock travelers!

As I mentioned earlier, I am involved in several traveling socks. This post is for my October mom's group. If you are in this group and don't want to see your socks, keep moving, don't read anymore!

 Here are my toes, started with a bright pink, bright green, orange and red superwash sock yarn!

We are each sending stitch markers for each mom, kind of commemorating the experience! Here are the ones that I made and sent, they are a pink crystal, our babies all, well almost all, have this for a birthstone!
Here are Karen's socks that I added onto with a superwash merino in colorway of storm, I used the pattern Socks on a Plane!
Here are Holly's socks, I used Wildfoote in Lilac Desert, very soft yarn in pattern Love & Liqour!

Blogless for too long!

I have been away far too long! In the last 3 years, there has been not one, but 2 baby McGonagalls!!! Jackson was born in October 2010 and Mason in February 2012!!!
This picture is from Christmas, but one of my favorites of them together!!!

I didn't get much knitting completed after Jackson was born, but I have been getting quite a bit done in the last few months!!!

I am involved in 3 traveling socks and a traveling monster, those are fun. I'll make posts for each as I get to the next step of each!!

I am knitting 3 baby hats for my photographer cousin to use as props for triplets she is photographing later this summer! I'll post those when they are finished! And pictures when they are born!

I'm also working on a pair of Monkey socks for my mom, in a colorway I was surprised to see her pick out! I'll post those! I'm about halfway done with the leg portion!

I promise I will work better at posting updates!
