I finished my Monkey socks a couple of days below. These were very satisfying to knit.
I have such a hard time photographing handknits this time of year. It doesn’t seem to matter if I do it indoors or outdoors…getting the light right is very difficult. Plus, it was COLD standing on a stone patio in stocking feet with my pants pulled up! I wondered if the construction workers across the street could see what I was doing… I really liked working with this yarn: Araucania Ranco solid (which is really a kettle-dyed semi-solid) in color 101, which is a deep purple. Do you think it looks purple here? A coworker referred to this as a “non-color” a few weeks ago, which irked me… purple isn’t neutral, even if it’s a dark eggplant-y purple!
And the skein is very generous: 376 yards in 100 grams. I had 17 grams remaining.
I’m very pleased!
