before and after

Before....

...after

monkey socks by Cookie A.
yarn - Cherry Tree Hill, Supersock Solids, color: bark
modifications - 8 pattern repeats instead of 7 - I hate short socks!
started during my flight to Spain - finished at home - today.

Monkey socks are the perfect knit on a long flight to somewhere....the pattern feels familiar, is easy to memorize but keeps one interested. The yarn is beautiful to work with and the color allows the pattern to be elegant. I have made them before in a variegated color-way, but I wanted a more sophisticated sock. The rich brown of this yarn gives subtlety to the pattern.
