The life of a traveling, reading, writing, spining and knitting shepherdess.

Ok, so that might be overstating it a bit.  But I do feel like a MACHINE of knitting prowess! Here are the latest and greatest Monkeys!


This was some beautifully dyed yarn.  I know it’s hard to see it, but this yarn had reds, rusts, oranges, greens, browns and even a tiny bit of pink in the mix.  It’s Socks that Rock Lightweight, unknown colorway.  It was a lot of fun to knit.

However, I am going to be hoping off the Monkey train for a little bit.  I’m making some socks for a male friend of mine and I’m not sure that the Monkey is the way to go. Both for the yarn and the person. Here’s the yarn:

Joel 1

Yes, it is very rainbow-ishious. And yes, he chose it:-)

Today I caused a (very) minor traffic jam on campus. You see, I took some stale buns down to Lake LaVerne to feed the fish and geese and swans. Anyway, first came the fish, then the geese and finally, the swans.  However, the geese are afraid of the swans so ran into the street.  They are not afraid of cars however, and would simply honk back as drivers tried to get through!  Oops!
