These are for my husband.....Knitpicks Essential sock yarn that is REALLY soft, nice yarn!!!! Garter rib stitch.
The second sock is ready to start the heel flap which I plan to do tonight!!
My FIRST monkey!!!
I K.N.O.W.....everyone and their brother has been knitting monkey socks 4-EVER......but I FINALLY got around to it!!!
This is knit with Cherry Tree Hill yarn that I received as a gift from Ginger.
I haven't started the second sock.....(hubby was pouting that he didn't have a pair on the needles).....but I plan to get this sock cast on tomorrow night while at Knit Night. I had a bit of trouble with the decreases at the end...my foot is WEIRD shaped but when the sock is on my foot it looks fine.
Last but not least.....this is the PURL FREE Monkey Sock!!! That's RIGHT....NO PURLS (except for the heel flap). I am using a picot edge rather than the ribbing called for in the pattern. Suzanne had some AWESOME picot edge monkey socks with her at the last Knit Night and I just HAD to give it a try!!
This yarn is Cherry Blossom Yarn.....here is the same yarn knit in the Parallel Pattern by Wendy!!
I love the way the same yarn looks when knit using different patterns!!
