Mom's Monkeys


It's another pair of Monkeys! These are for my mom though. My last pair were for me. I did these basically the same way. I used Lorna's again, but in a different colorway. Red this time since my mom loves red. I also added one pattern repeat to the leg because she likes her socks tall.

I also started the pattern while I was still on the heel flap. I've done the Widdershins heel enough times at this point that I felt confident doing that and it worked! There's one pattern repeat on the heel flap before the leg starts.

I think I must have knitted slightly looser than before since I got 7.5 SPI this time vs. 8 SPI last time. Same yarn, same needles, so it must be me!
