I really like this Monkey sock pattern
It's amazing how quickly these can work up, and I like the way the pattern affects the yarn. This is sock #2.
I decided to use 2 16" circulars which I find easier. Also helpful for me is to place a jump-ring on the cuff to be a visual of which half of the round I'm on. Has anyone else knitted this? (I saw yours redheadrachel )

My aunt is making those right now! She's loving them too. I just started making socks, but these are my goal. They look great!

I Monkey. I'm making pairs 2 and 3 right now. the pattern is easily memorizable, the socks knit up really fast, and the stitches really do cool things to variegated yarn - but look good in a solid as well! yay for Cookie A.!

I am going to be starting some Monkeys soon too. I just got the perfect yarn to do the project -- Zen String Bambewe in Penelope.
