FO: Monkey Socks

First, before the FO, some sad but hopefully temporary news. I'm a student, and I work. I'm taking six classes, one studio painting class. Because of these things, I'd had to shut down my Etsy shop. I hope this is temporary, and I can reopen when I have more time in the summer, but I'm not promising anything. I'm sorry to the people that were waiting for me to start sewing again.

In more happy news, I finished some socks! These are for my sister. She likes orange!

Pattern: Monkey Socks!
Needles: Size 1, 2.25mm
Yarn: Farmhouse Yarn's Fannie's Fingering.
Mods: I did the toe differently.

My parents got me these sock blockers for christmas! How awesome are they? I liked that with the monkey pattern, it nicely blocked out the lace.

I also started another pair of socks from Cookie A's book, Knit. Sock. Love. I started the Wedge socks for my brother. I'm loving them.

Very interesting wedge/short row construction so not boring to knit but not too hard for class or TV knitting. Interesting heel too!

Hey, really great post… I've enjoyed reading through your post because of the great style and energy you put into each post. I actually run freshwater pearl jewellery, with my personal research and experiences in teardrop pearl pendant. If you're interested, I would love to introduce wish pearl necklace to you. and I can give you more information. Looking forward to hearing from you.
