I finished one Monkey sock last night (hence the title of this post. I presume the ...KEY will come in a few days).
It was fun! Really well written pattern and quite easy. Not sure what the fuss is about turning a heel and grafting the toe is all about. Then again this encompasses my basic style of knitting: FULL SPEED AHEAD. DAMN THE TECHNIQUE (or torpedoes, really). Plus I am very good at teaching myself stuff, be it from books, articles or videos.
I am a little dubious about knitting the second sock. Didn't I already do this once?
And honestly, the whole product vs process debate that "rages" on in the knitting world is moot. I am both a product and process knitter, depending on what the project is. And sometimes I'm both at the same time. For socks, it is definitely product. I am motivated to knit the second one because I want a damn pair of red monkey socks.
