Did some obsessed knitting last night:

One Monkey down, one to go.

I really should get a real sock blocker...'cept I keep buying more yarn instead.

Usual specs:
Monkeys by Cookie A
Socks that Rock Algae lightweight
Knitpicks size 1 (2.50 mm) dpns
no mods - am curious to see how the St st heel will wear. Besides, when (not if) I knit another pair of Monkeys (thinking darker colors), I'll probably sub in the usual slip st heel

Now, I can either do the relaxing and easy Something Red or tackle my Twisted Flower more. Of course, it doesn't mean I won't be winding my STR Firebird. ;)

So pretty! Love your Monkey in that colorway. It is an obsessive pattern to knit! Great job!!

You have got to know that I'm not surprised, since I predicted the completion of this one over the weekend! Looks GREAT and I'm sure you'll have the second done within a week!

I can hardly wait to see it in person. Meanwhile, i work on the Cadence #3 sock!-lol!

Monkeys See, Monkey're monkeys are great. Makes me think I should try another pair. I didn't have the guts to do the stockinette heel on my first pair. i did a knit one slip one heel and it looks nice with the pattern. Your recent stash acquisitions rock! Whoa...I wanna raid your yarn basket!
