Monkey + Cute New Shoes = Bliss


HPIM1118, originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

I finished up the second Monkey sock last night while watching La Vie en Rose, the Edith Piaf film. It too, has a miss-matched toe:

but I love them just the same.

Pattern: Monkey by Cookie A. (Who I will soon be test knitting for! W00t!)
Yarn: Panda Cotton Print by Crystal Palace (note: yardage is very short on this one... most of the other Panda sock yarns (Silk, Wool, etc) have 200+ yards... this has 170. If you have a foot at all bigger than 6.5/7 US womens, you will definitely want a third skein or modify the leg to be shorter...)
Needles: US 2 DPNS
Mods: None!
