Few words, but lots of pictures!
In October, I knit my dad a pair of socks (Trekking with a simple ribbing) for his birthday:
In November I worked feverishly on my Sidewinder Skirt (which is almost done, just needing finishing work), and I quickly knit myself a Good Luck Cowl with a lovely skein of Koigu:
I also knit my grandpa a pair of modified Peekaboo Mittens. I finished the first one in time for him to try on for size on Thanksgiving (perfect fit!), then finished the second one less than two days later. He loved them. I already posted the picture, but I can’t resist including it again.
Over the past two months, I’ve gifted a bunch of monkeys!
Here’s Beatrice, who likes sushi, sailing, and lip gloss. She currently lives in Camarillo with Kate.
Here’s Roberta, who likes tacos, pop-up books, and blowing bubbles. She flew to Portland all by herself to live with Gina.
Here’s Orville, who likes chocolate, paintings, and playing tennis. He lives here in Los Angeles with Jerry, but has been doing quite a bit of traveling the past two weeks.
Here’s Constance, who likes swimming, snickerdoodles, and pastels. She’s also been traveling a lot this holiday season, but will soon be settled back in Santa Monica with Vanessa.
Here’s Floyd, who likes sandwiches, word games, and bicycles. He will be living in Mountain View with David and Maria, where I’m sure he’ll be relieved that it isn’t as cold as the places he’s been visiting.
Here’s Florence, who likes Hello Kitty, Tabasco sauce, and mah jong. She now lives with my mom, who proudly carries her around in her purse.
Here’s Rupert, who likes circuit boards, peanuts, and ping pong. He lives with my dad, and is currently riding around in style inside a car cup holder.
Here’s Willard, who likes hockey, lobster, and blackjack. He lives with my brother, where I’m sure he’s watching a lot of hockey games on TV.
Aside from the five monkeys I can’t yet reveal, that should cover all the FOs in my backlog! Whew!
