I'm probably the last person in the knitosphere to be making these. The Monkey socks, from Knitty, look through the archives section for the pattern. So clever. An easy to remember pattern repeat. I don't know why, but this sock just seemed to knit up so quickly. Mods made so far are a k2 p2 ribbing at the cuff, using the double start cast on I learned at a Nancy Bush workshop, and the usual slip stitch heel flap. The spool you see in the photo is wooly nylon that I knit along with at heels and toes. I have a collection with many colors--which reminds me, I think I saw some Regia reinforcing yarn at Lakeside Fibers when I was there. I'm using Dream In Color Smooshy yarn in the color Strange Harvest. I've seen this yarn in pretty much every shop I've gone into these days. The next socks I want to make are the Embossed Leaves that everyone else has made. I have some minty green Lorna's Laces sport weight that I think would be perfect.
