I finished the monkey socks, they are different sizes (even though I used the same needles, yarn, and number of stitches), and I love them both. I think I must have been extra relaxed when I knit the first one (right leg) because it is quite loose – the second one (left leg) tightened up a lot and the yarn looks completely different between the two. I was proud of myself for weaving in the ends so I didn’t bother blocking them before I put them on. Will the lace pattern look different blocked?
Tobey might finally be starting to trust us – he had a bit of separation anxiety when we left for work last week. Today, he happily slept on our bed with his head on the pillow. We took him to Mr T’s parents over the weekend to play with Brandy (the golden retriever). They are too cute.
Brandy likes to pull on her leash – makes it a chore to walk her so they got a gentle leader. This is the first time she wore it and she asked Tobey to help her get it off!
