First Cat of the year..

I finished my first WCY project this year.  My favorite pattern, No Purl Monkeys.  I love how this pattern just seems to zip along and after doing one pattern repeat, there's no looking back at the pattern, it's burned in my memory.  These ones were dyed in our Barn Cat base and they're self striping.
Even though it's more work to make the self-striping yarn, I absolutely love the way it stripes with no effort.

I'm going to go through my unusually large collection of sock patterns to see what to knit next. I'm thinking something with some cables perhaps.  Boss Cat dyed me up some Alley Cat today, but you'll have to wait to see what she did. So if you're up to it, come on over and join in the KAL, for inspiration and yarny prizes.

In the meantime I started a pair of socks for Miss "P", I promised she was next to get some some socks. It's not WCY, but another indy dyer who's work just amazes me. I'll give you all the details when I get a little farther along, or you can just check out my project page, if you can't wait.
