Denim Monkeys

Pattern: Monkey Socks
Yarn: Hazel Knits Artisan Sock, Denim Blues

Well, thanks to our trip to Seattle last weekend (read: sitting in traffic a lot) I got my second Monkey completed pretty fast! We had a really wonderful time. We were flown over by Hub's company for a big party. We got to stay at the new Tulalip Hotel. It was really nice. We got MIL an adjoining room and she and the girls partied all night... swimming, eating licorice and staying up WAY too late! Meanwhile Hub and I got gussied up and went to the party... and after everyone else headed to the casino we snuck away to one of the cafes and had ourselves a little date. The next day after a scrumptious brunch we started heading back south... stopping at our best friends for lunch and a nap for Miss E. Then later we headed further south to my Grandparents house to help Great Grandpa celebrate his 83rd birthday. And the next morning we flew home again. It was a great trip. Unfortunatly, since we've been home I've been having vertigo off and on all week. So... I'm not doing much. Wishing it away! I've had this happen once before after flying. I can't remember how long it lasted. Seeing as this is day five, I'm getting downright tired of it. So, I will end it at that because I'm sitting here swaying like a sailor!

Great socks -- I get vertigo after I fly as well...somehting about the sand in the ear getting shifted and make me dizzy....I was so sick last year when I land in Paris I had to spend 2 day in bed!

Oooh, I love them! I don't think I've ever done Monkeys in a semisolid; I really should, because I love how much the pattern stands out. Yours are gorgeous -- definitely something I'd wear all the time!

Hope the vertigo goes away soon! I know that's not fun at all.

Great sock pics! I love that denim blue color.

Glad you had a great trip, but bummer about the vertigo! Hope you're feeling better soon (like by the time you read this!)

Happy knitting-
