Drumroll please,,,,,,With actual knitting content!

Ok, so after some 7-8 yrs of off and on knitting,,, potchkering here and there,,,starting projects (socks 3 times already) and never finishing them, save for the one lone sock from last summer I can proudly present to you.


Are we still standing? Did anyone keel over from the immense meaning of that one said statement?



Ok lets forget now that they are in 2 different colors. Forget that they were done for a small child (my niece Kylie, who is 4 years old and begged me to make her some socks!). I dont give a flying fuck at this point! THEY ARE DONE! TWO AT THE SAME TIME!

Gawd help me,, lol I think I'm gonna have another heart attack from this one miniscule event, lmao!

Ok advice now,, this done and out of the way. I am going to attempt to make a pair of socks for me alone. Toying with the idea of Monkeysocks, since I've never attempted anything other than stockinette. I also have a beautiful skeins of ,,,Sea Wool in Hercules,,, some Lorna's Laces 3 different colors worth! 2 loverly skeins of Araucania Ranco and of course, my Schaffer Anne.

Any advice offered will be graciously considered!

Monkey is a fairly straightforward patterned sock. You should be able to do this. But I need colorways... Let me see what you got!

Congrats lady! I love mismatched socks, and have seriously considered making all my socks as such. I havent' but for now I'm known to wear mismatched all the time. How you been doing?
