Monkeys at the Fairgrounds!

Here we are in Monkey land again...Fairground Monkeys this time!

On Sunday, I substituted for Alina and taught her knitting class at the LYS in Multnomah Village. Too much fun! Those women are a hoot! It could become habit forming! Seriously!

I went up to the local 'Bucks and knit and sipped for a moment in the sun

Then off to my folks for Sunday dinner with the family and some out of town friends of my sisters'...they're from Ireland...how cool is that!?

Specs:
Pattern: Surprise!!! Monkeys by Cookie A.
Yarn: STR 'Fairgrounds'
Needles: Addi Lace 2.5 mm, 2.25 mm for the heel
Mods: Gotcha', no short row heel in sight on these puppies!! I did a heel flap using the Eye of Partridge stitch ala L-B! I did stick to my anatomical toe, however. Magic looping the whole way!!

For inquiring minds...the Zinnias (?) are from my mom's garden...she has the green thumb, I have skeins for thumbs!! :)

Isn't that pattern addictive? I really need to make another pair, need to finish a few WIPs first ;)
