FO: Monkey socks!
Hey everyone! You may have noticed I've had three FOs in a row after a long while... it's because I finally finished my Junior Recital a week ago. Now I've just got finals to worry about, so I have all kinds of free time! Piece of cake compared to my recital! (lol If you were a music major, you know what I'm talking about)
So I love the Monkey Sock pattern and have wanted to make them for quite a while. They're my first project with lace work. I was just waiting for the perfect yarn, and I believe this Alpaca Sox yarn was it! I love the way the pattern shows off the yarn, and it's just beautiful! They're made for a lovely lady that I go to church with here at school! Let me know what you think



More pics and details on Ravelry!

I love them! The colour is absolutely great and shows the pattern well. I've had these bookmarked for quite awhile now, waiting for their turn and the KniPicks Memories waiting for my free time to knit them .

The Monkeys look great! I love that pattern ...

Congratulations on your recital. Did you have to do a jury as well? I get to sit and listen to my (and the other) student's juries Tuesday.

Thanks! No, we don't have formal juries at my small school. I do, however, have a really honest piano professor. lol
Good luck!!!

Excellent job on both the socks and the recital! I love Monkey...I've made two pairs so far, and I don't plan on stopping.
