2 x 2 ribbing

For those who love to knit, sometimes it's not the results that drive your passion, but the process. I think this is why it's so easy to give things away when they are completed. You knit a part of yourself into every item and the pleasure you get is seeing it enjoyed by another.

You can imagine my delight when I received the following question on Friday. "Would you be able to knit a bellaclava for me before next weekend?" YES! I cast on this morning and already have 2 inches of 2 x 2 ribbing, need another 4 before I start forming the head. Hopefully he won't need it, but I'm glad he is preparing for another possibly cold Gulf War. I just wish I had time to make one for each of the guys who are going.... I would just need to make 4.

What would happen if I said : "Knit me a monkey!" Or "Knit me monkey socks!" Would you knit them for the sdake of the process?

Meanwhile, you should meet Mana Borisova. All the things I loves about her are all the things I loves about you! She knits, too.

Silly girl... I've already been looking for the correct type of yarn (and a pattern) for "proper" sock monkey socks. I did find this site.
