Royal Purple Monkeys

March 17, 2007




These are for me and only me!! Monkeys in glorious royal purple fit for a queen. This is a really fun pattern to knit. Challenging enough to be fun but not so difficult to be discouraging – especially for a novice sock knitter like me.I was intending to only knit one in this pattern but it was so much fun I ended up doing two. I got them finished just in time to wear them to worship services tomorrow. With strappy black sandals I think. And no one will even know if I shaved my legs. The color is not very good as I had to take this shot indoors with a flash. To see the true beauty of the yarn scan down to the post “Getting There”

From Tabitha Knits…

Here is the yarn for my next socks. Gargeous, ain’t it?! I got this from Kerry and I think I am in love with this yarn. It is SO soft and shiny and beautiful. I have it all wound into a ball and waiting impatiently for Monkey’s completion. I just have to decide which pattern to knit from this incredible yarn. What do you think – should I do
Falling Leaves
Hedera
Kew
Pomatomus

    I think the Pomatomus pattern would be lovely in this yarn. All of your work is beautiful and I thank you for sharing.

    Great socks- I love the purple. I was just sitting here tryingto decide what I should cast on next- I think monkey it is!
    I think maybe you should go for Hedra with the new yarn.

    I remember back when you were knitting these monkey socks. They really did turn out great.
    I think the Pomatomus would be a good one to start on next.
