Awesome job!  That's a pattern I've been thinking of trying.  Now to find the perfect yarn....   Wink

I'm half way through these now and your beautiful pair has given me inspiration to finish. I just was wondering about your yarn substitution, how many skeins of regia did you use?  I'm worried the skein of colinette I'm using won't be enough  Shocked Great work!

I got two balls each at 50g and my leg was 5 repeats instead of 6, and I still had 15g left over from each ball...

It takes two people to make a lie work. The person who tells it and the person who believes it.

Great socks Tiggerjenn. Monkey is a fab pattern. I've made 2 and a half pairs so far.

Maatsfeather you minght find that if you're using Colinette Jitterbug you will have to reduce the number of pattern repeats. One skein doesn't go very far, unfortunately.

Wait a minute, where's me jumper? On Ravelry of course.

Thanks for the advice, i would have gone bananas if I had made it all the way to the second instep and realized i only had 5 yards left  Undecided

Hey you know I'm flattered, really I am, it's just that you're not my type... More than a little disturbed that I might be yours.
