I have had an absolutely crazy week. Staying out every night til past ten and then having to get up at 5:30 to go to work all over again is not my idea of a restful time, but I had a lot of fun.
One thing that got lost in the shuffle was the Monkey Socks!
From the front...
And the bottoms. No, that isn't a trick of the light, they are totally two different colors. I guess that's what you get with handpainted yarn, and I'm not complaining.
These were an amazingly fast knit. I'm already half through with a different sock, which I'll have to show you tomorrow.
I have some new baby plants in my house:
I got a packet of grow-your-own 4-leaf clover seeds as a gift, so I'm starting them out to see if I really get one. I have an uncanny ability to find them in the wild, but I'm guessing the seeds I've got won't be mutated. In any case, it will be a cute little pot of something else green.
And what else is wonderful, my Christmas cactus is blooming:
I love the flowers because they're so wild compared with the rest of the plant.
Last but not least, there's the Super Bowl today. I will be cheering on my hometown Bears, and I'm bringing my cassette tape of the Super Bowl Shuffle, just in case. It's actually a really awful song, but it's quite funny. Bear Down!
