Monkeying around!

Astonishingly, I finished one of my Monkey socks! I loved knitting this. Although, according to addled brain, not quite enough to start the other one just yet, as is always the per usual brain and hands wandered off into a crochet-stash-blanket reverie. No sign of them yet...(or the other sock for that matter).

Being the matching accessory type, I thought I'd team the solitary sock up with a different type of knitted monkey:

 The other accessory available for this wardrobe is, of course, this perfect Little Monkey:


Monkey-tastic! Now I just have to finish start that notorious Second Sock. I wonder how long the other sock will be in coming...what's the record, do you think?!

To finish up, here's an aptly-themed pop quiz, pop-pickers! Which band is this...?!

(it's all in the head-gear)...


  1. Ooh, I love the way your sock has worked out. I do like this pattern, might make me another pair! And your 'Monkees' shot at the end is just great! Love the Mike Naismith (?) hat!

  2. Love this! I think Trixie is a fan of the Monkey sock(s) too ;)
    Cute knitted chaps too (nice modelling of headwear)... everybody sing along now "Hey, hey! We're The Monkees!"

  3. That yarn is gorgeous. It works really well with the 'Monkey Socks' pattern. So glad I bought a skein. Can't bear to use it yet though! It's just so lovely. Give Trixie a stroke for me. Ros

  4. Ooh cool sock - and I love your shoes! Perfect for showing off handknit socks! Are they Docs?

  5. Lol!! Loving all the monkeys! :)

  6. Rhi - yes they're Docs :) can't wear anything else on my feet!!

    Lol, josiekitten & Ruth - it is the Monkees... I'm that sad I had to knit a hat for the Mike Monkey. The smallest one is Davy Jones of course. sad sad sad...:)

    Snoopydog and Ozzy - thank you :) I'm pleased the colour went with the pattern! Can't wait to see what you knit with yours :)

  7. Ps do you youngsters know what a 'pop picker' is? Alan Freeman! Anyone my age listen to that? ooh the old days...
