FO Friday: Monkeying Around

This week I finished my Monkey socks! These are my first set of Monkeys by Cookie A. I can see why people find this pattern so addictive, and they fit like a dream.



They were knit up two at a time in Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere in Flashy Mint. If you remember about a month ago. I was absolutely raving about of much I was in love with this yarn. And that was just when it was in the skein! As socks, the colors play great with the stitch pattern and they are super comfy.  And comfy socks are pretty high on my list of things that are awesome.


They are delectably smooshy. I might have a new favorite pair of socks!

  4. I always love the Monkey socks when they turn up in blogland, the pattern is really sweet, and they look great in these colours. I'm glad you're even more in love with the yarn knit up---I often love stuff on the skein and then when I try to make something with it...not as much. So it makes me happy that this was a Fortuitous Skein for you. :D

  9. They look wonderful! When I made monkeys, I used a sort of variegated/self-striping yarn and I sort of hated them. Now every time I see good color choices like yours I'm reminded of how fun and easy they were to knit. It's no wonder it's such a popular pattern.
