number 47

It was Purling Pirate's birthday last week and I knit her a pair of socks.
Pattern: No Purl Monkeys by Crafty Pancakes
Yarn: Koigu KPPPM; no idea what the colour is; 2 skeins (50g; 175 yds per skein)
Needles: 2.5mm Hiya Hiya dpns
Notes: She's got big feetz so I only had a teeny bit of yarn leftover. My 47th pair of socks!!!!

The pics don't show off the colour well but trust me when I say that these are really bright!

The Lacy Kerchief Scarf is moving along. It looks about the same as it did last week but longer. I was hoping to get more done but my time has been spent playing with the nieces. And in a few days, hubby's parents come to town (not staying with us this time) so we've got a whole list of events for Easter weekend.

I didn't get any knitting done tonite because Dad's washing machine flooded the laundry room. Despite the fact that three people (I was not one of them) checked the outlet hose to make sure it was securely fastened, it wasn't. We spent almost 2 hours cleaning up the mess, reattaching the hose (securely this time), and testing it. I am currently washing 3 loads of towels used in the clean up because my washing machine is bigger and Dad doesn't have a dryer. I'm exhausted.

OMG, this happened to me the first time I did laundry in my new house!!! I flooded the laundry room, bathroom and kitchen!!!

The picture does not do those socks justice! The colours are awesome and bright and happy!! I love my Monkeys! Not just because I can't seem to make a pair fit me myself, but because you made them for me!

Ouch on cleaning up flooding! We are doing that right now, so I totally feel your pain. I'm glad you have lovely knitting in progress to distract you!

Love the bright socks!

So sorry about the washing machine. Washing machine and flooded... that's never a happy-making combo.

Love the socks. I've never seen a washing machine flood a house and it sounds like I'm thankful for that. Sorry it happened.
