I am astounded! This is the first relatively complicated (11 rounds in each repeat) socks I've every made, not to mention using a pattern that other sock knitters recognize. The pattern is a brainchild of Crafty Pancakes, a variation of Cookie A's Monkeys called No Purl Monkeys. The yarn is leftover Go Ireland from Knitivity. Removing all the purl sts creates a very soft variation. I've done two repeats with very little tinking.

I imagine this is old news to all of you, but a ten-year-old Canadian's knitting group was banned from the library for misuse of the library. Apparently they weren't literary based!

Neat video showing a very stretchy crocheted ribbing!

Beaches! Hey, do any of you know a nice beach somewhere between San Diego and LA? Could I be any broader in my request? We will have some time on our hands when we are driving up the coast and thought it would be nice to go to the beach. Somewhere clean and good for playing....

Another use for silk.... and it's GREEN!

Best idea for market bag handles I've ever seen!


  1. It is a fun pattern....it goes fast too!

  2. Wow! Very nice, Lizzie. The colors are perfect for the fast-approaching fall season.

  3. Huntington Beach - free parking if you have a handicap placard!
    Beaches are clean, lots of lifeguards and lots of changing stalls. Bathrooms too.

  4. Mission Beach in San Diego is one I like.


  5. Our Homeschool group used to meet at La Jolla Beach during the summer when I lived in SD.

    It was very clean and had plenty of lifeguards - more family oriented than some.


I really am glad you're commenting. Please make sure I can find you by insuring you leave an e-mail address. It's so frustrating to have someone ask a question and no way to answer them! Thanks!
