Its a Monkey! Pathetic I know but all the good puns have already been used for this sock pattern. :-)
The pattern for my first pair of socks for Summer of Socks 2007 is the very popular Monkey. I can see why it is so popular. Its quick, easy to memorise and looks fantastic! What more could you want? I made a lot of progress yesterday because I was battling with the after effects of a migraine I had late Wednesday. I couldn't concentrate on much and still had light sensitive eyes so the computer and reading were out. Knitting was possible and so that is what got done at least until the evening when the nausea came back. Once that happened I just went to bed! :-(
I'm using Posh Yarn Lucia in 'Twinkle', the January '07 sock club yarn, and 2.5mm needles. The only modification I've made is to do a reinforced heel. Love the yarn. Love the pattern. Love the sock. These are definitely for me!
