Another pair of socks is off the needles!
Tropical Monkey Socks
What: Tropical Monkey Socks
Date started: 4/26/07
Date finished: 9/16/07
Lesson Learned: After picking up stitches on the gusset, ktbl instead of just knit. It looks better and avoids holes/gaps.
Destination: my feet!
I have this much yarn leftover:
These socks were an enjoyable knit. I loved knitting the pattern on the cuffs. By the time I got to the foot, I just wanted the socks to be done.
I completed the feet of the socks last night while watching a marathon of Law & Order: SVU. Both feet and one toe took seven episodes to complete. I knit the second toe and grafted both toes this afternoon while watching The Wedding Night (one of my favorite old movies).
My only regret about these socks is the heel. I wish I had done an eye of partridge heel. The stockinette heel just looks too plain.
