Sockapalooza Pal... Your Socks are On Their Way!!!

Oh yes, the finished socks are currently winging their way to my sockapalooza pal and I can't wait to see if they fit. These were a fun knit and the pattern was so well written, they literally just flew off my needles!

Pattern: Monkey Socks by Cookie A.
Yarn: Mama E Cyeber fiber in Peppermint Twist
Needles: Size 1 US DPN's
Modifications: I went with a slip stitch heel instead of the short row one called for in the pattern.

I also sent the rest of the yarn.. hopefully my pal will be able to find a good use for it.

Ok, now when will my socks get here???

Very nice Trish - Another pair of pretty monkeys winging their way around the world. I wonder how Cookie A is reacting to the knowledge that her pattern is so incredibly popular.

Thanks Gina - I absolutely loved making these socks! I wasn't thrilled with either the yarn or the pattern alone, but when combined, they are spectacular! I wish now that I would have gotten a picture of them on a foot as the lace is so nice and not very visible in these photos. I guess I will have to wait for my sock pal to post a pic.

Did you participate in the swap?

Lilah - you can have socks when you measure your feet and tell me how many inches around the ball of your foot and how many inches from toe to heel.
