Nope. No monkey in the picture below. But it is a Cookie A. pattern :) And technically, it was supposed to be a monkey originally (long sockapalooza story that I shall spare you, okay not so long, but anyways).
Inspired initially by Stilaholic Nartian's BFF socks by Cookie A., here is the first of my Sockapalooza socks. I just LOVE this STR colorway, Love-in-Idleness. I thought it was a colorway I could part with from my stash, but I must say, as I knit these up, it got harder and harder (especially since these socks would probably fit me perfectly too!). Tapmouse, I agree, you should definately have this colorway in your stash!
So where is that Monkey?
Well, it that swing, Little Guy could pass as a monkey! Oh, yeah, note the purple and pink binky in his mouth! Its a miracle first of all that he took it! And it was the only one lying around (because he doesn't really like them), but Auntie Irishgirlie has the magic touch and it seems to be his new favorite little thing!
Look, even when he is awake! And we found a blue one finally! But, still not the monkey I was thinking of.
Look closely. A monkey sighting. Thank goodness. I can't wait to finish. Gryffindor socks for Rowan. BFF socks for Sockapalooza pal. Monkey socks for me :) Priceless.
Happy Knitting! xoxo Irishgirlieknits
