My monkey socks – finished just in time for Lolly’s socktober fest, but not photographed until this morning. A guy in his over sized Jeep was staring at me in disbeliev as I was trying to keep my balance on the ground with my feet in the air. Normally I would just have leaned back, but I didn’t want to soil my fancy new very white jacket so I sat there in an unstable V- like pose. I’m sure you can picture it, I was not very elegant to put it delicately.
The socks are not in a very exiting colour I know, but the yarn is very soft and durable. I bought it for next to nothing in a sale a while ago, it’s Froehlich Wolle Special Blauband.
The socks I made with this yarn three years ago are like new, despite much wear and subsequent washing.
