monkeying around (again)

I'm baaaaaaaack. In the interim I've moved, started a new job, cracked/lost a filling and (therefore) gone to the dentist... twice. (I have a phobia of dentists, so that's huge for me. That's right, I'm anti-dentite.)

I also, somehow, finally finished knitting my socks for the sock swap. I'll be packing them up and sending them this morning!

Pattern is the irreplaceable monkeys by Cookie A, yarn is cascade heritage, and needles are US 1 DPNs. No mods, except that I did a partrige heel (I think that's right... where you slip one knit one on the right side?).

Lovely socks! Whoever is to receive them is very lucky. I think you mean eye of the partridge for the heel, where you alternate the slipped stitch to make a honeycomb pattern. I love that heel!

Thanks Mairead! I guess I just mean a slip-stitch heel (all the same stitches slipped each time)... for some reason I thought it had a fancier name though! (although I do like the eye of partride as you describe it too... maybe next time!)

Congrats on the move and the new job!

I love this sock pattern. I definitely need to make a new pair. :)
