You can kiss my 2013 Project Plans good-bye. I started out with good intentions but I have totally failed at keeping them. I have made some of the projects on my list but for the most part I have cheated and worked on other things.

Today I bring you one of the patterns I cheated with and it is the all famous Monkey Socks by Cookie A.

My Monkey Sock Mascot. Found somewhere online

 I can totally see why this pattern is so popular. It had me addicted from the start. It was easy enough that I could work on them while watching TV but interesting enough to keep me going. The first sock took me a little while to make because real life kept getting in the way, but the second sock I was able to finish in 3 days. If you have not made these socks I highly recommend them. I am already plotting my next pair.

As for the yarn that I used, I loved the color, bright and totally girlie but I do not know if I will work with it again for socks. It was always splitting, it is very annoying when you are working on small needles. If you do not mind the splitting then I recommend it, the price value is very good, colors are fun and it does not feel bad in your hands.

Until next time, Happy Knitting!
