Monkey WIP

Here's my Monkey sock so far:

I am working on the 2nd lace repeat of 6 for the leg and it's moving along. The Imagination yarn by Knit Picks doesn't have as much stretch as I'd like due to the alpaca content and it's a bit splitty, but I really like the way the colors are working up so far.

I took advantage of the Loopy Ewe 20% Halloween Sale and I've got 2 skeins and a pattern coming to me for more holiday knitting. I still have to find something I like for my Dad's socks, but it's going to take a lot of yardage and I just haven't found the right thing yet.

I'm going to be crocheting some more cat toys for the kitties in our family this holiday and
I'm sewing up some super simple rice bags for my Grandpa to microwave and put at his feet at night. I made my Dad some a few years back and my Mom snitched one and uses it almost every night (she's always cold).

It's good to have so much of this decided so early this year, now to churn out some FO's!!


  1. I have always wanted to make these socks. Can't wait to see them when you finish.

  2. I think it was a good way for me to attempt lace for the first time. It's a nice pattern, and very well written.

    I finished the first sock yesterday and I'll try to get a blog post up about it today. There is a pic of it on my Projects page on Ravelry too.
