Monkeys finished

Well, I finished my Monkey socks last night. They're done in the Mocha Spice color from Fearless Fibers. I needed them to be wider than the pattern, so I increased the number of pattern repeats to 5 (80 sts instead of 64) and decreased the needle size to size 1 KnitPicks dpns.

This is the first pair I knit for myself. I love the way they feel. I will probably knit this pattern again, but not right away. There are a few other patterns I want to knit first, including some others by the same designer, Cookie A.

I've already got three more socks on the needles, but they're not for me. I'd post pictures, but I haven't taken any yet. I will soon and post them.
I also have a shawl on the needles, but I'll write about it later.
