Not a Monkey
I planned on knitting Monkey Socks with this yarn, but these stripes needed something less distracting than a lace stitch pattern to show off their beauty. I think they really shine in this 3x1 rib. And right now a simple pattern that I can knit in my sleep really works out better for me. I need a "don't have to think about it" project for the end of the day and this is it.
I'll have to buy a variegated yarn to knit a pair of Monkeys since I don't seem to have any in my stash. For those of you who have knit a pair (or multiple pairs), which yarn would you recommend? Has anyone used a solid color before? I do have some of that stashed away.
Have a great weekend! Our kids will be home for a few days, so we're planning on having lots of fun--no housework allowed.
