Hey Monkey!

Well I’m all messed up
That’s nothing new
Hey monkey, when you open up your blue eyes,
I don’t know if I’m wide awake or dreaming
But all I ever need is everything

from “Monkey” by Counting Crows



I finished my Monkey socks last night and I love them! Beautiful color, beautiful pattern, beautiful fit on my foot. I actually followed the pattern as written on these socks, because as much as I hate to say it, I don’t think my toe-up/short row heel socks fit as well as top-down/turned-heel socks do. I might need to try Wendy’s toe-up/turned-heel pattern… but I digress.

The Monkey socks rock! I memorized the pattern by the third repeat so I didn’t have to keep referring to my printout. I did Cara’s modifications — a picot edge top (which I adore) and only 4 repeats of the chart before the heel. I wouldn’t want them any taller and am 100% pleased with these socks.

Pattern: Monkey by Cookie A
Yarn: Sunshine Yarns – Spring colorway
Needles: size 3 Addi Turbos
