All other projects are suspended for the moment. Kevin has taken a trip to a conference for the week so I can finally work on the best Christmas present ever! I got started on it last night even though I only had around 3 hours of sleep the night before. We had to be at the airport at 4:30 am for Kevin to make his flight. I hate seeing the clock at that time.
Over a month ago, I found this pattern for knitted sock monkeys. Which is perfect for Kevin. Monkeys are, well, a bit of an inside joke I guess. So many people, at some point or another, have given Kevin a stuffed monkey or something with monkeys on it. I have 4 more days to work on it before he gets back. Hopefully it'll be done, or almost done.
This is how far I've gotten so far. Just a foot, but it's knitting up pretty quick. I am not a big fan of knitting with tiny double pointed needles but couldn't figure out a way to make it with different needles. I would have bought a lighter shade of grey or brown but this was the best that the store had. Maybe if it goes well I'll go on a yarn hunt for a better color.
I was watching the star trek movie again this morning so I thought it would be appropriate to have my tea in my star trek mug. We got it in Washington at the Air and Space Smithsonian of all places.
