This is Monkey from Knitty knitted in Knit Picks Memories. I really like this colourway! :heart:

Those look fantastic!

I'm excited about learning to knit socks. I'd love nothing more than to have a drawer full of colorful, punkish socks. The monkey pattern is on my to-do in the future. :)

Beautiful socks! Is the pattern fairly easy and would you make them again?

slightly addicted to yarn

Beautiful socks and the colour works so well!

That yarn worked great for that stitch. They are wonderful looking socks. What monkey? :-) I was looking for a monkey, you know big ears and long tail. LOL

Yep, I'll say the pattern is fairly simple and straightforward without any fancy stuff. If you've knitted socks before, this one should be a piece of cake (this is only my second pair of socks)! Plus, the pattern's really clear and well-written so I say go for it! I'll definitely knit this again if I was the sort to repeat patterns but hey, so many gorgeous sock patterns out there, so little time! :mrgreen:

Thanks Lissie.

'Monkey' looks really sturdy. I have a friend who can go through a home knit sock in no time at all, which frustrates both of us. She wears them out in the arch.:??

About repeating patterns, I always like to have one project on hand that I don't have to think about when working on it, so the second pair is always easier.

This is the first time I hear someone wearing out socks in the arch!
