The Promised Monkey Photo

Here are the finished Monkeys. I usually do a plain foot because I feel it fits better inside my shoe, but I decided to continue the pattern down the foot. I haven't tried the new socks with shoes yet - it's way too hot so it will probably be a while. But I do love the way they look and feel on my feet.

The new pair of socks is a little farther along than these pictures show - I just turned the heel on the first one, but I thought I'd show the pictures of the new sock enjoying the beach. Nice waves (not too huge and just right to play in) and beautiful sand. The new sock is the Cable Rib sock from Favorite Socks and the yarn is Candy Apple Sleeping Dragon yarn.
I did join the Tour de Fleece but somehow totally forgot I'd be away for the start and I wasn't prepared. But now that I am home I am hoping to finish up the fiber that is on my wheel - some Border Leicester that I am not all that fond of for some reason. But I still need to just finish it up and go on to something more fun!
Enjoy your weekend!

Your Monkeys are great!

And you reminded me: I have to order some Candy Apple Sleeping Dragon.

Hope your weekend is lovely!

Beautiful Monkeys! You picked a great yarn to go with the pattern. The new socks look nice so far too. I haven't heard of that yarn yet, so I'm going to check it out now. Enjoy the beach!
