I told you he was a monkey

I told you he was a monkey boy! He saw someone doing this is and before I knew it he was climbing the walls. He is fearless. We are working on our letters and numbers and reading lots of books. JP is a busy little Monkey.

In knitting news. I just can't seem to get excited about anything I'm working on right now. Even my socks are boring me to death. I think I am going to look for a really simple lace shawl. Something that does not have me glued to a chart. I have a really lovely lace weight in the stash to use for it I just need to pick a pattern. I have seen these really pretty garter st shawls with a little ruffle all over blogland but that is just more garter st. Got any suggestions?

In shop news I am working on a big base yarn order. More worsted is already on the way. I will get more sock yarn for sure. Superwash Merino and wool/nylon blend. Should I get some lace weight too? Do you guys want lace weight?

Also one more thing. Watch this space for upcoming news. I am planing BunkyBobo's first yarn and fiber club. The sign ups will be in early march with club shipments going out the last week of April,May and June. If it goes well there will be a round 2 in September, October and November. I am calling it Science Fiction Double Feature Fiber Club. Each shipment will have 2 colorways as well as other fun swag and as always BunkyGirl Lip Balm. Stay tuned for more details.

I am working on an icarus shawl. Suggested fingering weight but I am using malabrigo laceweight. I'd suspect it would go quickly with fingering weight, and once you get started, a good portion of the shawl is easy enough to leave the pattern home. Then you have a couple ending rows of more complicated lace. I think it might work to get you over this slump.
