Monkey business

I was moping around a bit on Friday thinking I ought to be participating in some sort of Olympic-style knitting challenge and how awful it is that I have way too much going on even to think of such a thing, when I suddenly had a brainstorm:

Why not try to get everything that's on my needles off them and into some productive form before the Winter Olympics are over?

Leaving aside how challenging it is to knit from a chart while watching opening ceremonies, I think I've done rather well with the two pairs of socks I would normally never finish one of in a mere 17 days. Behold the Monkey Socks!

Yes, it's true. I've got both legs done and I've turned one heel. Of course, the heel looks a little weirder from the other side,

but I've decided to Have Faith In Blocking.

That sounds like an excellent plan. I can't do any Olympic knitting because the only knitting I'm supposed to be doing right now is work knitting, and I'm already working faster than I'd like.

Your monkeys look wonderful, and I'm certain that the heel will block out fine.
