Monkey Socks

Everybody's doing it and I'm no exception...Monkey socks.

Yarn: Wildfoote by Brown Sheep
Color: Soft Jazz
Needles: Size 2 Lantern Moon

I love the fit of these socks and I'm sure it's not the last time I'll do this pattern.

Forbidden Romance

I finished my plain STR socks earlier this evening. I had to finish the toe and knit the afterthought heel with a leftover ball of Trekking XXL. The STR is lightweight in the color Waterlilies.
On the drive home Mutti and I were admiring my socks. The following dialogue occured:

Me: "Well, they look goofy, but at least I got to use two of my favorite yarns. They're together - at long last."

Mutti: "They could mate and have sock babies."

Me: (making socks "mate" - hey, it was late, we were tired.)

Mutti: "Don't do that in the car! They'll get yarn come all over!"

Me: "Wouldn't that just be yarn tail?"

Maggies 2nd & 3rd pair

The rosy hot pink pair are #2 and almost whities #3, second sock of almost white pair will be finished today. Next will be an almost solid LL's pair with lots of odds & sods, soft blues, lavenders, greens etc.

Here they are. Monkey socks by Cookie A. They gave me fits in the beginning, but after I got rolling, I LOVED THIS PATTERN! My pics are not the best, I took them 5 minutes ago, I'm at work, gotta do it fast, fast!
