Next project on the list is another comissioned piece - Mardi Gras Apple Hats for Lejeune's (a lady I work with) two one-year olds (twins!). They're going to be purple w/gold leaves and gold w/purple leaves, and green stems on both. Mardi Gras colors!
I also FINISHED MONKEY! I am terribly excited about this, and they are sooooooo comfy and neat. I also finally figured out what "pooling" is, and that it happened on my first sock. But I'm cool with that, as it actually looks neat, IMHO. :D
On the left you can see the pooling that happened on my first sock, as opposed to the neat stripes on the second. MEH. Such is life. I actually had no idea that this was bad, until the internet informed me. D:
Next up is a close up of the nifty lacy pattern. Please ignore my flash, as these photos were photoed in the nighttime in my room. This is the second sock that I did, so the pattern was fun and easy by then and not the craptastic mess the two and a half repetitions the first one sports.
Better pictures of them on my feet coming soon. I already wore them to work and they're dirty now, so they need a nice wash.
