Monkey socks done

I finished the second sock Wednesday night. That is a pair of socks completed in less than a week, which I think is pretty good, especially since this was a bit more fiddly than plain stockinette. The pattern is Monkey by Cookie A.

My yarn is a superwash merino wool that I purchased at Lilies. It's handpainted by the Dyeing Arts in Omaha NE. They have a website on the ball band (thedyeingarts.com ) but it doesn't appear to be functioning at present.

The color is Limey, and it is. I just love how it turned out and the fit is fantastic.


I think I have enough left on the skein to knit a hat.
