monkey see monkey do :)

monkey socks

here they are, my finished monkey socks. they should be in the mail today but they're not.. tomorrow I hope. :)

I changed the heel.. I don't know what the name of this heel is, but it works like.. you do the normal sl1 k1 on the right side, then you turn it around and do sl1 p1 on the flip side, and keep doing that back and forth. it takes more rows to get long enough but feels so nice.. and looks nice, I think.

they're going to be for my sister for her birthday, the yarn is regia nordic in some colorway that's blue, and I bought it at that yarn shop in heidelberg while we were traveling in january, so it seemed destined to be her socks. hope she likes them. I wish I'd bought more of that yarn..

Wow! That's one really nice pair of socks! I've been hearing & seeing so much of this pattern lately; yours is such a nice knit-up of it that I'm totally sold on the pattern. Wish I had a sister who knit for me! : )

HI, I'm not positive, but I think that heel st. pattern is called 'eye of partridge'. That's what I have been calling it for quite some time, anyway. I guess I should look that up somewhere, shouldn't I?
Love the socks, and Turkenstein!

Ooops, silly me, I shouldn't try to view 2 blogs at once. I'm not smart enought to keep them separate in my little pea brain, I guess. Turkenstein was a chicken on a different blog. Sorry.

Those socks are beautiful! Your sister will love them, I'm sure. You did a great job. I do this heel on all my socks as they feel and look good. Like the previous comment, you have sold me on knitting this pattern!
Happy knitting!
