Monkey Socks, FO



My Summer of Socks lone pair is finally done!

Pattern: Moneky Socks by Cookie A
Yarn: Trekking XXL, color 77, a present(yay!)
Needles: Knitpicks, size 1

Trekking is finer and not sproingy like Koigu. It seemed a bit splitty, so the very sharp knitpicks came in handy. I loved the color shading and the final product. The pattern is very easy to follow and thankfully easy on the lace-phobic I've become.

The grey Totoro's really wanted to be in the picture, as they feel entitled to equal time to the blues.

Now, what for Project Spectrum orange, brown, purple? Do I cheat like last color and post flowers? Hmmm.

Nice monkeys! I know what you mean about trekking being splitty, but it washes and wears so nicely... and the colors! I think it's my fav commercial yarn.

Grrrr, everyone's knitting Monkey Socks but me! I'd love to cast on a pair for myself, but I just made a promise to myself that I'd only work on Christmas gifts for awhile, and unfortunately, no one wants socks *sigh*. Ah well, at least I can enjoy seeing yours done beautifully!

Fabulous Monkeys! I can't seem to get Trekking to work in a pattern. I tried knitting some up into a pattern recently and just didn't like the look of it. Plain Jane socks it will be!
