…because my knitting is all over the place. I’ve got FO’s falling out the ears and that just isn’t me.

So I thought I would make a quick Christmas hat out of the leftover Noro Iro…

Too small…

Next, I thought I would start on the on the Turtleneck Vest from Fitted Knits

but my Left Lifted Increase was leaving some pretty big holes. I tried to knit them through the back loop to try and minimize the holes but it just looks messy and uneven so that was forsaken too.

I finally thought I would cast on for the Monkey socks. Man I was cruising happily thought these socks because they are a pretty easy knit as socks go. I was even impressed that they were knit on size 2 because I have a big foot and the circumference of the sock was 8″ unstretched and my foot is a 10″. They were going so fast that the sock looked like this on Sunday…

and today it looks like this..

Just one problem. I didn’t realize size 2 DPNs come in two sizes 2.75mm and 2.5mm. WHAT!!! Yeah, guess which ones I used. You guessed it. Even funnier is that I bought a pair, then misplaced them, then brought another pair. When I figured out my error I went in search of the other needles, which just so happen to be 2.75mm too! Errr.

So I am this far to finishing the first sock, it is kinda loose and I really like the yarn so I may rip and either start again with the Monkey or find some other pattern to showcase this lovely yarn.

I want my mojo back!!!
