I'm looking for a challenge and have some lovely lorna's laces sock yarn.... also a slight Cookie A fixation.  No stalking yet, I swear.

I vote Monkey too.  Just look at the Pomatomus chart gives me a headache.  And personally, I like the look of the monkey design better too.  If you make a monkey, and still really want more of a challenge, then go for Pomatomus.  But I think when I decide to do something harder than Monkey, I'll pick something with some pretty cables.

Monkey is a lot easier, but I really prefered Pomatomus.  It's so stretchy and fits so well!  It probably depends on the yarn though.  I wouldn't bother doing Pomatomus socks in a highly variegated yarn.

The yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepard's Sock in Pin Stripe... a sort of medium to dark gray variegated.  It's pretty neutral.

Monkey was more fun to knit, it's a really easy, simple pattern(but not to the point of being borring). Pomotomus held my attention better, and was more of a challenge than Monkey was. I enjoyed knitting them both. I say go with whichever you like the look of more.

Monkey is beautiful, but it is easy.  You said you wanted a challenge, so I vote Pomatomus--the chart really isn't as scary as it looks, but it definitely holds your attention, and the end result is so pretty!  Just pay strict attention to whether it says ktbl or just k--I had to rip back a few times because I kept reverting back to regular knits.
