Monkey Socks Are Worth Aping Around For!

January 26, 2007 at 3:17 pm 5 comments

I finished my monkey socks last weekend, and they’re finally washed, blocked and dry. I must say, I love ’em! I used Yarn Pirate yarn in Brownsugar, and I love the way the colors knitted up! They’re so interesting, but you can still clearly see the textures of the pattern. See that flower in the picture above? That’s in my yard, right now! Can you believe it? Sure this is south Georgia, but it’s JANUARY! Amazing!

I knitted mine on #2 US circular needles (2 socks on 2 circs). I added one pattern repeat to the leg so they’d be a little longer, and fit a little better, but I must say, these socks even look good when they slouch down on my ankles! I also knit an eye of partridge heel flap, because I just love the look of it.

They were a pretty easy knit, but took me awhile since I’m a slow knitter. All in all, about three weeks.

Next up, Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Black Purl, in the Rococo pattern by Wildhorse Farm Designs. I got both the pattern and the yarn from my all-time favorite place, The Loopy Ewe! Sheri is fantastic, and offers out-of-this-world customer service. As always, I’ll have pics for you once the socks are complete. Y’all have a wonderful weekend!

    I’m the first February Poster! Awesome work as usual Claire. I really like the Autum colors and the diversity of the patterns. I hope you’re feeling better real soon, it’s not a fun time I’m sure. Take care, and keep up the awesome work. 🙂
