Hmmm...in the pattern notes, she claims that she didn't name it this way because it looks like tree limbs, but I've gotta kind think it does. And I guess that monkeys hang out in trees, hence the name?

Nathalie, they look awesome! I'm so glad you chose to use the Tofutsies for Monkey, they're perfect. I had to frog mine because they were too small, I was using a size 0 needle because the gauge seemed loose on my 2s. Yours are inspiring me to try again on the 2s!

I love it. The colors you chose is just so cheerful and fun. This sock makes me really want to knit my first sock.

Thank you for the suggestion!

I have to say that several times, I considered going down a needle size because it does seem loose, but I really like the way the sock feels, so I'm going to leave it as is.

Cookie A. says in the pattern she couldn't rest until she had worked this pattern out. She had to get this "monkey" off her back. Get it?

I've renamed mine SeaMonkey socks, just because I see waves. That's a lovely colour way, very cheery!
