View Full Version : FO & WIP: still Monkeying around

04-05-2008, 01:35 PM
Since I can't buy any more yarn for a while, I've decided to knit up what I have (which is not really much) and finish all wips (which is much - LOL).
Monkey socks, pattern by Cookie A., located on Knitty.com
Needles: KP Harmony 2 size 1 (2.50m)16" circulars
I've pretty much memorized the pattern, and as I finish a pair, I begin another; this is my commuter/lunch/free time/oversee DS' homework --you get the idea --knitting.
The 2 FO are Socks that Rock, lightweight - "Pirates Booty" on the left and "Farmhouse" on the right. Both are "fraternal twins".
And the WIP is Schoeller-Stahl Fortissima Colori - Socka Color in lot 341019, color 9098. I really like what the pattern is doing to this. 4780547806
Because the this yarn is much thinner than STR, I've been knitting a bit looser (I don't have a larger size needle). But all seems well.

Ohhh, I love the Monkeys. I started a pair and they are too small and still need to be frogged. Love your colour choices...aren't socks addicting?

Wow. I love the pattern, and that yarn on the left (Pirate's Booty?) - that's to die for!
