Monkeys, one down!

I finished the first monkey sock today, pheww!!!! I was beginning to think I'd left it a little late, now thats not like me at all is it LOL!!!!! I still have the second sock to do, but considering last week I had one harry potter sock done, and half a monkey sock done, and now hp socks are finished, and the monkey socks half done, I think thats pretty good!!!! I really like the monkey pattern, and will be making a pair of these for myself once these swap monkeys are all wrapped up!
As its Breast cancer awareness month, and pink socks are popping up everywhere, I'm going to make myself a pair of pink socks for october. Using the sugar mice yarn from skeinqueen, they should knit up quite quickly cos the yarn is a bit thicker than standard sock yarn.
I've pulled the union market pullover out of hiding, and hoping to make some good progress on that over the next couple of weeks too!
I'm still feeling a bit unwell. The GP thinks I have glandular fever, so I'm waiting for some blood results to come back, and if it is that, I'll be off work for a couple of weeks I think......... So aside from feeling grot, I should get plenty of knitting done!!!!!! I always like to look for the silver lining:-)

Good looking monkey!

I hope the doc is wrong - glandular fever doesn't sound nice! Well done for seeing the bright side though!!!

Missed the last post so this is a double post worth of comments!
1. Really hope you have not got glandular fever! Its awful to feel really run-down. I feel a bit like that but its a week until half term so that kind of goes with the teaching territory!
2. The cinnibar sweater looks great on you -we just need some seasonal weather for you to enjoy it. I love the neckline & shaping on this sweater.
3. The monkeys are awesome. I must knit this pattern! the colours in the yarn are fantastic.
4. Well done you on the fund raising.
Hope you feel better!
