  • Hey, Hey I'm a Monkey

    Then I saw her face,
    Now I'm a believer.
    -The Monkees

    The Sockapalooza Socks are in the mail. While they wisk across the country to their intended recipient, we can all admire the glory that is the Monkey pattern. I had been enjoying the many pairs popping up all over blogland, but I didn't truely understand until I made a pair of my own. Now I'm a believer.

    Monkey Socks
    Pattern: Seriously? Someone still needs the link?
    Yarn: Ball and Skein handpainted sock yarn in Mosaic
    Needles: I described my fancy trick here - I used 2 US 1 dpns and 3 US 2s
    Notes: I obviously went with the picot cuff, but no other mods
    Best Thing About This Project: Now that this pair is done, I get to cast on for a second pair!

    You too, with the Monkeys, huh? I can see I will need to knit a pair myself! I'm sure the recipient will LOVE these!

    I really like the picot edge, lovely! I just finished a pair earlier today and was also in admiration of the stunning simplicity of the pattern.

    I wasn't all that excited by this pattern before either, but those are lovely! Maybe I'll try out a pair and see if it makes me a believer too.

    There are really nice colors in that colorway! The Monkeys look fantastic, I am sure your pal will like them. I like them because they knit up so fast. Go forth and continue to let your knitting flow!

    Those look great! Originally I just liked the pattern for the name, but I am beginning to think there is a lot more to these.
