Fruit Tingles

Fruit Tingles!

My "Fruit Tingles" socks are finished..... both of them!!!

Project Notes:
Pattern: Monkey by Cookie A
Needles: 2x 2.5mm Addi Turbo's
Yarn: 2x 50g skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in "Winona"
Started: 1 June 2009
Finished: 8th June 2009

Apart from a few little mistakes at the beginning, this project went smoothly. I basically finished the February Lady Sweater, then started knitting these socks straight away. Unfortunately, I had the gull lace pattern stuck in my head still, and was trying to knit that while knitting the monkey lace. Oops. After 9 whole rounds, I realised why it wasn't working right and frogged it. Then I started again and it was all good again.

It's nice to have the Monkey off my back. :p

Yes, I knit the first one last year, then it sat on my bookshelf looking really pretty for a month. Then when the MIL was here last weekend, I decided that I was going to knit the other one, so I got right on it. I did most of it this weekend, so it was a very productive weekend.

You also helped..... seeing you knitting up your froot loop sock inspired me to get off my butt and knit a sock too. Thank you! :)

These are gorgeous. Nothing has made me want to knit Monkeys before now. I just may try them!
