I'm currently pissed off, frustrated, tired, and so the negative-emotions list goes. So pictures:
Pattern: Monkeys by Cookie A.
Yarn: Classic Elite Yarn's Alpaca Sox.
Color: Number 1856, lot 5346 - Greens, blues, a bit of purple, and some PINK.
Needles: Knit Picks nickle-plated DPNs, US Size 1ish.
Start to Finish: Uh... Some time in the fall of 2009 to November 28th, 2009.
For: My mother, for Christmas
Notes: I did these toe-up, using the star-toe from the New Pathways for Socks book. Garter stitch heel because I didn't want to be bothered trying to hide the wraps. Not sure about the ribbing at the top - I wanted to try to keep the flow of the money pattern, and I think it works. Had a hard time binding off loosely, so I did a round of yarn over, knit two together, a plain knit round, and then a bind off that involves knitting two stitches, then knitting them together. It works, and mom won't care. Not sure I like the way the yarn stripped, but mom likes it, so who cares? They might be a mite short in the foot, but that's the problem with this pattern. Not all that adjustable.
