Stop talking about Isaac Hanson's sperm when I'm trying to write butter!

I finished my Monkeys!!! Yay!!! I'm so happy. I was seriously unsure that I'd finish them in time. But, it turns out, I did. :) Unfortunately, that is the last singleton I have that I actually like. I may do my "broadripple" sock, (that link takes you to the picture of the first sock, for the pattern go here) but I'm not sure. It's a little too small, and if I finish it, I need to find someone who has smaller feet than I do who likes bright colors... hmm. I know of a certain little girl of Heather's who might like them. Interesting. :) Anyway, here are the monkey stats.

Pattern: Monkey, from Knitty, by Cookie A.
Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy, in Cool Fire.
Needles: Size 2 double pointed needles.
Mods: The only thing I did differently was I omitted the twisted rib, and opted for a normal ribbing. My thoughts are, I already hate ribbing, I don't need it to be more painful than it already is. I also decreased every round for the toes, because they were going to be too big if I didn't.
Comments: I LOVE love love LOVE this yarn. It's so... well... smooshy. :) Plus it's dyed in such a way that it couldn't pool, and it just looks... well, you can see how awesome it looks. It's a tiny bit darker than it looks in that pic. I haven't washed them yet, because I can't seem to take them off long enough. :) I'll DEFINITELY be buying more of this yarn in the future. I love it.

Now, on to the non-knitting content.

D is for... Dogs!

These are my babies. Mattie in yellow, Storm in Chocolate. I know you've seen them before but I figure there's no better "D" for me. This is us having a nice photo shoot. Well, mostly.

This is my mom and dad's dog, who we dog-sit from time to time. Her name's Sadie. She's Storm's "birth mom," although she didn't ever take care of Storm and his brother, I did.

Here's Mattie, being "The Dog." She got right in my face when I was trying to take that pic...

Storm is so difficult to get a good picture of. Most of the time when I take his pic, it ends up looking like this.

(He was barking at me.) But I finally managed to get one of him.

Thanks for stopping!!!
