MOVE OVER MONKEY

I have a new favorite sock pattern – Zigzagular from Prairie Girl Designs.  It goes super fast, because all but 11 stitches in it are stockinette in the round, which makes it fly off the needles.  The zigzag cable is way cute.  I love the way it snakes up the side.  Here is a look at the first sock of the two, unfinished, but you can get the idea.

WEEKEND WONDERFUL

We had all our chicks in the nest over the weekend and since the weather cooperated, we took advantage of the sunshine and went to Pinnacle Mountain State Park for the day.

I admit, I did not hike up the mountain. I don’t do well at all with heights, never have, so I found a park bench that was perfect for people watching and read my book and knitted on my Sockhead Hat.

Mr. Iknead was kind enough to share his pictures:
