like crack

it started fairly innocuously, with a pair for my knitty sock swap pal, bryghtrose.


then, i wanted a pair for myself – after all, it’s a very nice pattern, so much fun to knit, & i had this lovely koigu waiting patiently in the wings – what harm could it do?


after i finished them (just barely over a week ago, if you’re keeping track) i felt odd. bereft, almost; a little sad, a little lost. it took me just over a week to realise what i was missing.


yes, it’s my third pair of monkey socks – this time, in socks that rock lightweight in “puck’s mischief”. & seriously – it’s sock crack. i can’t stop. it’s sucking up (socking up?) my energy, my attention, & all my knitting time; i only started this pair last night & they’re already only 5 rows away from the heel flap. & it feels so good…
if you haven’t already tried it, go get yourself some monkey!! all the cool kids are doing it…

    I’ll just let you knit my monkey– oh wait, you already did. 🙂

    I am knitting my first cookie a. pattern right now- pomopotomopoti – you know, the P-word socks. They’re fun. I might try monkeys myself later
