No More Monkeyn' Around

With a nod to my Knitter's Knight for the photo, here are the Monkeys. Done. They are a titch big on me, so I hope that means they'll fit with the negative ease my Sock it to Me pal says she likes. I don't mind pooling, so I hope she doesn't either. Sorry for the blindingly white legs, but that's what I have. They brighten up the photo anyway.
The stats: Knitpicks Memories, in the Red Hat colorway. Size 2.5mm/#1.5 dpns, the bamboo Addis. Only a few yards left over. Each size 9 sock took nearly a whole ball. I enjoyed the Monkey pattern, but have decided that for me, toe-up, short-row heels fit better. (But hey! These aren't for me...)
So, the socks and their pals will hit the road tomorrow, along with my tea pal's package, and my portion Jessi's prizes for winning the bingo game. Congrats again girl!
Now, if you'll excuse me, it's past my bedtime.

Woo hoo! Another pair of socks down for you - amazing! I have not been able to knit at all, so do a few rows of something (anything) in my honor!

Very nice socks, Chan. I have yet to try the pattern. I must be the only one in the world. I bet your pal will be thrilled. And are we gearing up for tonight's House season opener? Alas, we have to Tivo it because Hubby watches NCIS and The Unit. Argh!

AAAah look you model them! YAH!! I love the standing on the couch pose! Haha!

They look GREAT! That yarn really did knit up much better than I thought. And I actually don't mind pooling either despite some knitters fuss over it.

Great job Ms. Chan! I am sure your pal will love them!
