Catching Up

Meet Monkey, a finished sock. One finished sock. But if you look closely, you'll see that I have started the second sock, and that's as far as I've gotten! The yarn is some KnitPicks bare that I hand-dyed a while ago. The colors reminded me of early autumn, when the leaves are just starting to change, but still have a lot of green in them. This last picture is indicative of the true color. It's got a lot of yellow in it, very warm. I'm not fond of making socks, but this yarn was begging to be made into a pair, and Monkey seemed like a straight-forward pattern, which it is. I've got a few other projects I'm working on right now, but as soon as they're out of the way, I think I'll finish that second sock!

I love the dye job. The colors are great and perfect for fall.

Nice socks. As you know, I have yet to make my first pair of socks. I need to start over.
