And Then There Were Two

Monkey socks, that is.


Pattern: Monkey (free!)
Yarn: Knit Picks Imagination Hand Painted Sock Yarn in Ruby Slippers
Needle: US 2 (2.75mm)

They're nice and cozy warm. YAY! Socks for Bruce are forthcoming. Not sure what pattern to use for him. Any suggestions?

I also started a Vine Loop in Cascade Dolce, which is a yarn I've never used before. Began this morning and it is moving pretty quickly.

Also, minor medical problem turned out to be minor after all (YAY!). Life is good. Yup.


  1. What fantastic cheery red socks! Great job!

  2. Glad to hear that the medical problem is minor! I hate the anxiety that comes with the not knowing.

    I might check out the Yarn Harlots ravelry project page. She knits lots of socks for her husband.

  3. glad to hear your good news about the medical situation. i like this new template you have for the blog!

  4. Fabulous socks! LOVE that color :)

  5. Yeah for medical problems being minor!

    Your monkeys are lovely! I've started on my first socks for Farm Boy, and I'm doing a simple k3p1 pattern. I used Ann Budd's Handy Book of Patterns to pick a size. I'm bracing for a long, boring knit!

  6. Minor is good :-))
    Lovely socks, I knew you could make two in short time. When I knit socks for DH it is always k2p2 - poor guy...

  7. Woohoo! The color is great :-)

  8. Yay! You inspire me :)
