Do The Monkey!
The consesus is to use Suzanne to knit the Monkey socks. So, I will. It will probably be one of my first projects in February, since the yarn is SO absolutely beautiful. I think I have set some pretty crazy goals for ProjSpec. I'm going to do my first sweater, some stranding/color-work for the first time, and work with lace-weight yarn! Not to mention I seem to have a much larger project list than most people. Though, many people tell me I'm a fast knitter. I finished a pair of Knucks in four days, a sock in two (note: just one sock), and a tube top in a week. However, if it's something I just don't feel like doing, or that requires seaming, I can definitely take my time. Like, my mom's top. Or my Aunt's socks. How about that scarf for Secret Pal 8? Actually, that's nearly finished now.
See my little supermodel? lol She was too cute modelling for these pictures. I certainly hope that this is long enough! The fringe is alright looking. I wish I'd made it longer though. Oh well. After I get off here, and clean up, I will finish the fringe. Then, tomorrow probably, it's off to the post office! Gotta go get a new ID anyway.
It's funny, although I was told when I went to Nolan's doctor's appointment yesterday, I just really thought about my expired ID this morning. When I first got married, I was really unhappy about moving away and moreso about marrying a military man. Something I promised myself I'd NEVER do! So, when I would look at my ID the expiration date represented a sort of freedom. I couldn't wait for that day to come. Now it has come and gone, barely even a blip on the radar. Obviously, I knew we were going to re-sign before it happened. Still, it's odd how priorities shift.
That's enough of THAT nonsense. Anyways, I don't remember if I said anything about wanting to sell some hand-dyed yarn before. I think I did. What do you guys think? It's not going to be like...huge or anything. Not like, a full-time job. I don't expect to be as famous as Mama-E, Scout, or the Yarn Pirate. Just, make a little money to save up for a wheel and other things like that. Probably won't be buying any yarn until after we get our tax returns. But when I do, I think I'm going to give out some samples to my dedicated readers (I know who you are!), let me know what kinds of colors you like, some that you don't really use much, some you absolutely hate. For some of you I kinda have an idea from reading your blogs and seeing the things you've done, but I also want to kinda...draw you out. Maybe encourage you to knit with colors that aren't your usual, but I don't want to go overboard.
Oh, I know that the picture is totally unrelated. But it's awfully cute.
