Praying Feet

Ok, not really...it's just the pose I did to display my latest socks for my January entry in the Sock-A-Month 2 KAL. I finally finished this pair, and used 2.75mm dpns and a basic stocking stitch pattern. The yarn is Knit Picks Memories in the Easter colourway (which I think is no longer available). The colours in the picture are pretty accurate too.


The pattern sort of went all wonky on my when I picked up the stitches after turning the heel and continued on into the gusset. It got more back to normal once the decreases were finished and I was working on the foot part. It's alright though - adds a little character...yeah, character...I'll go with that!

Thanks to all who have joined my One Sock Two Sock webring (link to join is on the sidebar listed under 'Rings'). Along with my crappy button (the one with the red socks and blue writing on black background), there are three new ones, and they, too, are on the sidebar. Feel free to use those on your blogs/sites, but remember to save them to your own computer first! Thanks to Susan for the one of the striped socks in high heels!

Very cute socks! The Monkey pattern is in the Winter issue of Knitty, and the link is here: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTmonkey.html

They're very easy to do and a whole lot of fun. I recommend this pattern to EVERYBODY!

I love the socks and I have been lured in by your sock along......I tried to resist but it will encourage me to use up some of the sock yarn I have and maybe come up with a few ideas of my own!!!!
