monkey see, monkey do

I made monkeys! Just like everyone else. . .


But how I love em!

Monkey love!


Monkey dance!


The wonderful Sue made me a superb pair of blue Monkeys last summer, which have served as my staple walking sock ever since. It was time to make myself a new pair before I walked hers into the ground. I don’t make socks very often, but they really were a delight to knit. These are made from old maiden aunt sock yarn, in the cherry colourway. I knit them on one 2.5mm circ. I am also sporting my favourite shoes, for maximum monkey fun.

  1. The monkeys look fab – I have been looking at the maiden aunt for quite a while thinking how beautiful it looks. I might treat myself in the near future.
    The shoes are AMAZING – I have a long term obsession with monkeys and would love to be able wear some on my feet! Happy feet!

  2. Well you know how much I love Monkeys… but I better never get any shoes like those or monkl will steal them clean away!
    Your newly knitted socks are lovely.

  3. Oh, my goodness, where on earth did you find monkey shoes?! Too cute, and with the Monkey Socks- winning combination!

    I have shoe envy…

  4. hi there – the “old maiden aunt” herself delurking here to say wow, those look gorgeous! i wonder if you would let me use a pic of your finished monkeys on my (yet-to-be-finished, but soon) web shop, to show how the yarn can knit up? let me know if that would be ok – i’m glad you enoyed the yarn!
