I tweaked the photo a bit so the yarn color was more accurate. My lawn isn't really radioactive green! Pattern: Monkey, by Cookie A (as if you didn't know!) Yarn:Knit Picks Memories in Hawaii (why does knitpicks insist on discontinuing my favorite yarns?!) Needles: US 1, Brittanys, gifted to me by my secret pal.
I really like these socks a lot, although the second one is a bit tighter than the first. Maybe I was more stressed the second time around? They both fit though, and the yarn is comfy, soft, and warm. Good thing it's been too hot for socks, though, because I can't wear these just yet. I'm going to put them in the fair! I just need to get my hands on some sock blockers. Oh, and remember when I said I had to go down to 00s to get gauge? My swatch lied. It couldn't go over my foot. I should have just used common sense and realized that I almost always cast on 64 stitches and size 1 needles almost always fit me. These were worth frogging and reknitting though.
Okay, time for me to go listen to some knitting podcasts and finally finish my swallowtail! I think I'm procrastinating because I don't want it to end!
