Kids and Monkeys
Is there really a difference between kids and monkeys? Most of the time I would say no. Today, however, the monkeys I'm referring to are these. Yes, the Cookie A. type of Monkeys. They were next up out of my pile of UFO's from the Sock of the Month Club.
These socks are more challenging that what I normally take on for socks, but I am enjoying stepping out of my comfort zone. Last night, at knit nite, I started the gussett and made good progress. The yarn is a custom colorway from Sarah at Perfect Day Yarns.
My child monkeys and I made a visit to a nearby pumpkin farm on Sunday and had a wonderful time together. This was a true working farm complete with animals of all kinds. I managed to get the kids to slow down long enough to snap a photo of each. (OK, I bribed them with a donut and cider!)
As for the love of sheep, well, that seems to be genetic. Both Mayhem and my Absent-Minded Professor ran directly to the sheep pen and this guy trotted right up to them at the fence.
They sure do look happy, don't they?
