Cranberries & Cherries

The gift has been received, and the receiver is very happy. In fact they've already been worn...

These are the Monkey socks I made for my sisters birthday. They were very, very hard to give away, I think they're my favourite so far.

Pattern: Monkey Socks from the winter issue of Knitty.com
Yarn: Lonesome Stone Mountain Feat
Colour: Shades of Cranberry
Needles: Knit Picks Size US #1
Started: 19th March, 2007
Finished: 7th April, 2007

I've also mailed off mum's Mother's Day present and will post some photos when she receives it.
I had a girls afternoon on Sunday and watched one of my all time favourite movies - 10 Things I Hate About You. I know it's corny but I love it (especially Heath Ledger). I also made some snacks - Artichoke dip and cherry turnovers, which were both delish even if the cherry turnovers did explode a little! Anyway, here is a photo of my cherry turnovers (I tried to maneuver them so you can't see the exploded ones).

Unfortunately, I didn't get a photo of the dip - we ate it instead!

Finally we are off to D.C. this week. I have my plane knitting packed and hope to have lots of photos when I return!

    your Monkey's look great - they're fun to knit, aren't they? I am always (pleasantly) surprised at how easy to follow Cookie's patterns are, too!
