I love seeing all the different versions of monkey socks! I am almost finished with the first sock, I just need to graft the toe (my least favorite part) so there will a pic soon!

I successfully completed my first Monkey.
I used yarn I dyed myself with kool-aid and food coloring. I am SO glad they came out alright. I was afraid it'd pool a bunch or something.

they're going to be a Mother's Day gift for my awesome mother-in-law.

as you can see, I significantly shortened the leg and made an eye-of-partridge heel--


and in case you're interested in what the yarn looked like before it was turned into a sock--


I put half in a mason jar with yellow and half in a jar with an orchid color, both jars in a cast-iron pot with water. i "cooked" it until satisfied, then i dipped the un-dyed center into some greenish-blue water. I probably made it sound harder than it actually is.

also note  my totally cool hanger blockers.Cheesy

You can never change the past. But by the gace of God, you can win the future. So, remember those things which will help you forward, but forget about the things which will only hold you back.

I started these last week!

I'm about 3/4 of the way through the first sock and should have some pics to share soon.  I just love this pattern and how it's turning out.

Everyone's looks awesome!

Everyone has made such gorgeous ones! Mine are knitting up fairly stiff in some boring brown Rowan 4 Ply Soft on #1s...oh well....
I'm really loving this ultra memorizable and pretty lace pattern. I love lace!
