River Rapids FO

Lookit - another FO!

Pattern: River Rapids sock by sockbug
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill supersock in Moody Blues
Needles: 2.5mm dpns
Mods: Knit the sock toe up using the chart as is; used two different versions of the Sherman heel; knit 2x2 rib on the back of the leg rather than the lace for a better fit

And I did a little shopping for my Monkey swap pal.

I still haven't decided whether I'll knit her Monkeys with this yarn or if it's yarn I'll send her. But I should decide soon so that I can get them knitted up!

I have been helping out at Kids Quilt Camp on Mon and Tues plus we were out all day Sunday. So Phoebe was particularly clingy every time I sat down yesterday morning. See -

Usually, she only lasts 15 mins or so per lap session. But she hogged my lap for over an hour before I had to turf her so that I could make myself lunch. After lunch, I sat back down for a little more knitting and she stayed until I had to get up to go to work. She's back to normal today.

Aaw, so nice you have a lap knitting friend! Mine lays on the arm of my chair next to me when I knit. He lays there watching the yarn with evil intent in his eyes. Fortunately he knows better than to act on it.
