Whew! Just squeeked in under the wire for January.
Pattern: Monkey Socks by Cookie A. (knitty.com)
Yarn: Seacoast Handpainted Yarns, colorway Balsam ( 60% Merino, 30% Bamboo, 10% Nylon)
This is terrific yarn to work with, combining the best features of merino and bamboo - highly recommended.
I worked on these socks while visiting my parents down South, over the Christmas/New Year's holidays. How much do we love using one long circular needle for socks when knitting on airplanes? A lot. Don't get me wrong, I'll never give up my dpns, but there are times (airport security) when circs rule (cramped plane seats).
Stay warm, everybody.
