I wanna be a Monkey!

Every time I think about these socks, that song (if you can call it a song) pops into my head.

Monkey, monkey monkey, I wanna be a monkey!

Ahem. Darned earworms.

Anyway, like everyone else in the entire knitting universe, I am knitting myself a pair of Monkeys. They're the companion to the fancy lace scarf, for when I need easy knitting that takes no braining. And I love 'em. Can't wait to get to wear 'em.

Wanna see?

MonkeySock

It's not the best picture, but it'll do, right? The yarn is Cherry Tree Hill, colorway Sugar Maple, knitting on size 0 needles.

The picture is from last week, so imagine that I'm about a half repeat away from starting the toe decreases.

And one advantage of being a product knitter? I almost never get second sock syndrome, because I want the damn socks too much to delay.

What a great retort to the "I don't wanna make the other sock" problem! I owe you a real thank you note for a perfect gift, by the way. Will send privately.

Nice Monkey! Love those colors. I'm curious about the size 0 needles, though...what kind of gauge do you get in stockinette? I'm a size 2 girl myself...
