My Monkeys are done! I like them but don't love them. I'm going to try some "No Purl Monkeys" soon, but have been commissioned for two pairs of socks by the end of October. I've got one sock of one pair done and I'll show those to you when I've finished them.
Back to the Monkey's....
The pattern is not difficult but was one I had trouble memorizing. I just sat with the directions/chart in my lap as I knit so it wasn't a problem.
They look great as it's a pretty lace pattern, but they just feel "bulky" on my foot and I don't care for that feeling. I think the "No Purl" version will probably lie flatter.
I certainly don't mean to discourage anyone from knitting these socks. I'm probably the only person in the whole world that isn't enamored of this pattern by Cookie. Everyone loves her socks!
