Pattern: Facted Rib Socks from The Little Box of Socks by Charlene Schurch and Beth Parrott.
Needles: #1 (2.25mm) dpns.
Comments: As you know from my previous post about this pair, I love the pattern.
The yarn seems to compliment the pattern with its color and springiness. I keep photographing the texture.And these brown socks are a lot less interesting, but wonderfully utilitarian, sturdy and warm.
Yarn: Schoeller Esslinger Zimba Top, colorway #125
Pattern: My personal pattern
Needles: #2 (2.75mm) dpns
Comments: The yarn seems heftier than regular fingering weight, and I cast on only 56 stitches for these. I toyed with the idea of making a sock monkey out of this yarn.
Then I envisioned a monkey face added at the top of the leg.Finally decided they'll just have to be house socks. Coordinating with my Nick & Noras.Could monkeys knit?
