Hall of Shame

I'm sure most of my blog readers have already seen the disaster that is my pair of "Monkey's", I've been sharing my embarrassment far and wide for the amusement of all. I loved knitting these, it's such a lovely pattern but alas, it was so lovely I just couldn't stop myself on the second sock, and just kept going and going. The picture tells a worse story than actually is. I have one more repeat (11 rows) on the longer sock, but I'm sure my darling daughter will not mind too much, and as an astute poster at Woolaholics mentioned, it may even become some sort of weird tween fashion statement.

In other knitting, I've cast on a hat for my Dad's birthday next week, and started some new socks that Jack and I designed yesterday. I made some modifications to the cable chart we drew up, which while in the midst of a mind-fuzzing headache, may not have been such a wise decision and I may soon have another entry for the hall of shame.

Anyway, the socks look great. If you wear them under a pair of pants, no one will know.
