So I watched and knit. The sock was just long enough above the heel to start the cuff. My plan was to knit a 2 x 2 rib because I do like how that fits. But somehow, this happened.
It just popped into my head and I double checked the pattern to be certain I was remembering it right and a couple of inches of toe up no purl Monkey socks were whipped up before I could blink. Monkeys are like that. At home, after knitting another inch on Myliu Lino, the rest of the sock happened.
Monkey socks are a great little pattern. Intensely satisfying to knit, they look complicated but they are not. Just a nice little bit of busy, to keep you engaged. And I was!
I have knit a few of monkeys before but this is my first pair for me. My keeper monkeys. Toe is already cast one for sock 2.
