Is this yummy or what?!?! No, not my skinny and excessivley long foot, LOL! This is Socks that Rock in colorway Fire on the Mountain that I have had in my stash since October ... fondling it, but never wanting to use it because I couldn't find the right or perfect pattern. Well I saw several other people make Monkeys out of Socks that Rock and they looked awesome, so I decided to do the same.
This pattern is addictive, another reason why its named after the monkey on your back! I haven't been able to put it down. It could also be the luscious yarn, that if it was edible I would gorge myself on.
At first I was a little worried about the gauge since I was coming out with something more like 7-7.5 sts per inch as opposed to the required 8 sts per inch, but seeing this picture and having tried the sock on, I think it'll work out just fine.
I did 5 repeats of the leg instead of 6 and I had to do less rows for the heel flap so that it would come out the right length. I really do hope I don't run out of yarn. This is not a whole skein because I split it with a woman at the yarn store who only needed it for one more sock - she was getting three socks out of a skein - so she weighed out 1/3 for herself. But I think it'll work out OK, doesn't seem like I used too much so far ... and I always am amazed at how much I am left over with when making socks anyway!
