Finished Object!

Socks are charming little projects, which can be carried handily in a bag and drawn out during dull moments. However, it's difficult to finish them if you stuff them in a drawer.

I started Cookie A.'s Monkey socks from Knitty last semester, but only finished them this week. To tell the truth, the pattern started to frustrate me, but I did complete the pair at last.

More details are on Ravelry, but for all the non-Ravelry folk, here are the details:

Pattern: Monkey
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn in Sand Ridge
Needles: Size 1 Bamboo dpns
Verdict: Good pattern, well written. The socks fit nice and snugly.
