Busman's Holiday

I finished a somewhat grueling pattern involving a 36 row graph and attendant line-by-line instructions, so I decided to take a bit of a holiday while Oscar had his long weekend. My favorite way to relax from intensive knit and crochet design? Knitting or crocheting something fun :-}

This time, I chose The New Sock Monkey pattern from Susan B. Anderson's Itty Bitty Toys in Knit Picks Rainbow Felici (ultra-soft fingering weight yarn.. yummy!) (if you love the yarn, hurry up, they are running low on it) (I am loving this book, next up, the reversible Lion and Elephant toy, I think, from some Rowan Summer Tweed (an Aran-weight cotton/silk blend)
