Monkeys are Truly Done

I hadn't realized it's been a month since I posted anything. I've been busy, but also nothing seemed interesting enough to post about. In fact, I've been knitting, but none of that seemed really exciting. I've been trying to finish all the lone socks I've got, so I can actually wear them, but it is somewhat less interesting the second time around. I've actually worn some of the socks I've made which is interesting. I do notice the difference between my store bought socks, which is that the other ones feel softer, but fit differently. I guess I'm used to the elastic in the store bought socks. Anyway, here is a picture of my Monkeys, which took forever, because I had to reknit the first one. I didn't follow the rule about using the exact same needle for both socks, even if it technically says they are the same size. These fit well, except they fall down a little bit when I wear them. I haven't blocked them, so I wonder if it's just the lace trying to scrunch back up. I'm now trying to finish my Spey Valley socks from Knitting on the Road, and it should be faster, once I get past the patterned cuff.
