I know...bad blogger. I just haven't been in the mood to even turn on the computer, much less be online. I have just been knitting and watching movies. Lazy blogger. But I have gotten knitting done. That's always a good thing, right? I finished the Monkey socks and LOVE them. The pattern was so fun to knit and the color of the yarn is just fun. It is going to be a little chilly again tomorrow so I can probably wear them. We have been having rain all day and windy so socks were appreciated.

Speaking of socks (quite the segue huh?) I am so pleased to be able to knit a pair for mom. She just really didn't want a pair but then I made her try on a pair of mine. And she was sold! haha. These are a slip-stitch pattern from Knit Socks! done in KnitPicks Palette (fingering) in the color Fog. I'm not sure what I think of the yarn. It seems to be nice and soft but maybe just a little "splitty". But so far it is knitting up fine. I am almost finished with the first so we'll see what mom thinks. I think she'll like them. She has already picked out a few more colors from the catalog.
Didn't do anything for Mother's Day as it isn't a big deal for her. She really just wants to be treated well all year, not just one day. Fair enough. Plus the weather was just gruesome so who wanted to be out. We watched the Laker/Jazz game (boo...bad Jazz) but don't get to see my Spurs play as we don't have cable. As long as they make to the playoffs and I can see them play then.
Alright.Back to the socks and I'll be back soon.
