What’s all this yarn for?

For some reason, this has been a year of major knitting funk.  Even my regular go-to projects – socks – held no appeal to me.  Oh, I bought plenty of sock yarn and cast on many a toe, but after a couple of inches of knitting, I'd lose all interest and it would go in the pile with all the other WIPs/UFOs. 

This project, at least, is nearing completion:

Spawn

The bright yellow baby blanket keeps on chugging along, which is good because its intended recipient reached completion a week ago.  The divine miss Zoe Rose arrived on the fortuitous 09/09/09.  Mom, Dad and Zoe are all doing fine but are currently blanket-less.  I'm watching the boxing mutts this weekend so hopefully I can get it all wrapped up by race day.  The Chase starts this weekend, so hopefully New Hampshire will go better than the last few races have.  I don't think four-in-a-row is in the offing though.

Monkey

I couldn't wad up that big tangle of yellow acrylic (yes, I said the A word) to take to Colorado with me, so I dug out one of the skeins of ShibuiKnits Sock yarn I picked up in Portland and cast on a toe-up Monkey.  It's my first time playing with the Eye of Partridge heel so I'm not sure if I've got it quite right, but we'll see.

    Oooh, purty. I like the way the stripeyness is coming out with the pattern.
    Hmm, the Harlot just told us that you can’t do a flap-and-gusset with toe-up…now my little sock brain is confused.
