In which we admire some Monkeys

Ends run in, blocking complete, perfect fit achieved: I present my very first (and definitely not last) Monkey socks.

The yarn is 'Open Flame', an exclusive colourway from I'm not even sure which installment of the Vesper Sock Club I can't bear to leave even though I will soon be swimming through sock yarn to get to yarn of any other weight.

I like they way they brighten up my boots.

I really, really like them. Next time I'll try knitting a few more repeats on the leg, and getting a closer colour match for the heel and toe, but I'm very happy with these.

(ps for Angela - in the end I didn't pin them while they dried to make the pattern pop; it just popped on its own!)
