Monkey Pooled

Sock it to Me pal, we're halfway there. It's a terrible photo, but there it is. It is too big for my sock blocker, which means your foot size is average or better. I will block them when both socks are done, which I hope will improve the presentation. The pooling doesn't bother me, so I hope you'll appreciate it as the way the yarn flows too. (Funny thing about pooling - hate it or accept is as part of the art?) However, I am crazy about the pattern. I now understand why Cookie A patterns are favorites of sock knitters everywhere.
In other knitting news, the yarn for my tea pal arrived Tuesday. Now, the big decision is whether to cast on for the bag for that package, or the second Monkey? I won't have much time for either tonight, or Thursday night. Wow. When I talk like that, the weekend is almost here! Any big plans for your weekend?

Hey Hey Hey! I'm in the Pay It Forward Exchange with Wendy and had to hop over here to let you know that one of my Pay It Forward Angels, Colleen (the very preggers rock star chick who also needs some crafters to sign up!) and I came up with a button..she did the artwork and I played in Photoshop and have over 20 (yeah, you read correctly) different shapes and sizes for everyone's purposes and you can find them right here!! So...GO....GRAB a few buttons and show the world that we are spreading kindness and love all over the www!!!! (Remember, save button photos to your computer, please).

Not alot going on in my world this weekend. Hope to work on my sisters market bag and get my tea pal's stuff off. Oh, and I forgot get more into my 2nd Harry Potter book, yes I finally finished the first. I like the sock. I see it was another late night awakening.

Love that sock.I like the way it pooled. I haven't tried Monkey socks yet but they are on my to do list.

I just finished my Monkey socks. I got a little bit of pooling, but not enough to make me unhappy.

Love the colors in your Monkeys. That IS a great pattern!

Really nice Monkey sock. Pooling doesn't bother me, either, unless it's really objectionable. Yours is lovely. Great job!
