Monkeys

Here are my completed Monkey Socks. Pattern from Knitty.com. Yarn is Socks That Rock, colour 'Watermelon Tourmaline'. Thanks to Carrie for sending me the yarn - it was very nice to knit with and makes these socks really cosy. I will definitely be checking out some more of that in the future. I enjoyed making these a lot and may consider making more.

I really like how the colours pooled in a sort of spiral around the socks.

This first picture is of Hubbs and I modelling the socks and showing off our tattoos. She has the stars, I have the flowers.


I love my tattoo. Sometime, I'd like another. Maybe my boy's initials. But where?


Never the shrinking violet, Matt wanted in on the sock wearing and camera action. Here he is in Hubbs' back garden. She has the most wonderful lawn, manicured lovingly each week by her husband, the great JT. He mows it once, then again the following day, with what I can only describe as an antique! Looks great, doesn't it.
