... monkey do ....
for awhile now, i've read how knitting cookie's monkey socks is quite satisfying. this pattern is the next best thing to a totally mindless stockinette st. sock. with little effort, the results seem quite complex.
this yarn has marinated in the stash for a number of years ... it's brown sheep's wildfoote handpainted in brown sugar (and susan bates 1 dpns) .
so, in short, i am in process of making yet another orphan. and you know what? i don't care! for some reason, i create rules for myself. and then i let them stress me. why do i torture myself ?!
so, here's the new rule ... knit as many (different) socks as i like. it's practically summer, and i won't be wearing socks again until october or november. take good notes regarding which needles were used (that's what the blog and flickr are for). knit the mates when i feel like it. by then, it will have been so long that it will be like knitting it for the first time. right?
