I am quite happy with the finished Monkey Socks. I think they turned out great. It is a pretty easy pattern to knit. The pattern we used is Monkey by Cookie A.
The yarn A chose is Heart and Sole by Red Heart. I tried to match the stripes but it was not clear until I had knit a fair amount of my sock that the two skeins of yarn were wound in opposite directions. If I had knit my sock starting with the outer end of the skein the stripes would have worked out.
Otherwise, they were a fun pattern to knit. I finished knitting my sock this morning and had the pair photographed and in the mail to Adele by noon. I have already started my next sock.
It is a sickness. You probably already know that.
It is a good feeling to know I am writing to an audience who understands. You do understand don't you?
