Monkey Business

I am so pleased with these. I think they are my favourite pair of socks so far - maybe I have had more practice now, but I'm just thrilled with the fit and the finish. You can find the Monkey pattern here btw. And on Ravelry there are no purl versions too. I like the texture and stitch definition of this version, but can see how no-purls would be a quicker knit. I expect I'll try them shortly ;-)
It took me about three pattern repeats to "get" the pattern, once I could see what it was doing I was away. I think this pattern is going to become a firm favourite of mine, and I can see why so many people love it.
I really have been bitten by the sock bug!
