Staggering Monkeys and other Sock News

Staggering Monkey Socks
Yarn - Socks that Rock lightweight in Queen Rock
Pattern - Staggering Monkeys

I wasn't thrilled with how the pattern and yarn played together on these. I considered frogging after I finished the first leg, but obviously I didn't. I decided not to carry the pattern down the foot. It's probably a good thing, too, because I had very little yarn left over when I finished the second sock.

I'm anxiously patiently waiting for the first shipment of this year's Rockin' Sock Club.

In the mean time, I'm working on 2 other pair of socks.

Twilight Socks
More socks for my 10-year-old
