Sometimes I really surprise myself. I am lazy when it comes to, well, most everything but mainly with my knitting. I just want to sit and knit without having to think or be distracted while I do something else like talk or watch a movie. But this sock has been a pleasure. It does require some paying attention. I can’t watch a movie with subtitles or anything that requires me to focus 100% but I don’t have to focus 100% on the sock either, maybe 60% which is quite doable for me. So because of this my mind has been wandering off and thinking about other “fancy” socks. This may be a new thing and really I’m stunned.
The pattern is Angee by Cookie A. If you enjoy knitting socks and you haven’t knit a Cookie A pattern you must right now run and find some yarn and cast one on. Monkey is the perfect gateway pattern. Go ahead, you won’t regret it. The yarn is Sensations Truly in truly turquoise.
For those of you who have been playing along at home, my father got out of the hospital yesterday. He’s got 3 pages of instructions including visiting two doctors in the next couple of weeks and two new prescriptions. Hopefully they’ll get a handle on these issues and we won’t be repeating this extended hospital stay again.
