Hey everyone! I just finished my Monkey socks (http://www.knitty.com/issuewinter06/PATTmonkey.html) for the Prayer Sock Swap II in Ravelry's Christian Knitters group :)
I actually made these socks with the yarn I received from my partner in the last sock swap! It's hand-dyed by her, a washable wool-bamboo-nylon blend, I believe. I'm normally not a huge fan of variegated yarns, but I think Cookie A's Monkey sock patter does a really good job with it.
Let me know what you think!

Beautiful! I think the yarn is perfect for that pattern. I'm starting a pair Monkeys today and hope they turn out as well as yours.

Is there a picture somewhere? I cannot see your socks.... And outside links won't work any more...... Our computer is feeling iicky. LOL

are they really as easy as I've heard? I really wanted to make some after my next yarn order, but I've been debating over that and another pair. But I really like how Monkey looks.
