Finally finished my Monkeys...

I cast these on MONTHS ago. I can never focus on one project so it took me forever to finish them. They sat in my knitting bag untouched for a long time after I cast on the second one. I vowed to never succumb to SSS (second sock syndrome) so I would knit on it a little bit now and then but never focused on it for a long period of time. A couple of months ago I talked about them at knitting and decided I had to do the heel and gusset. But after I did those, I put it aside again.

Last week I decided that I needed another completed project in my Ravelry Projects so I picked it up again and knit on it a little bit every day. Well, I finally finished them last night. They are blocking now. It'll be months before it is warm enough to wear socks again, but when that time comes, I am armed with a pair of hand knit ones!

If you look in my stash and queue at Ravelry, you notice a slight obsession with sock patterns and sock why on earth are these only my second pair of completed socks? LOL The first pair went to my mom, so these are my first. They should be quick to knit. I have no idea why I can't seem to focus on them.


  1. I have yet to start a pair! Might succumb with all these patterns I keep seeing

  2. LOL....I'm in the same boat. I have tons of sock yarn, but not a ton of handknit socks. I'm hoping to have more for this year....I wore holes in 2 pair last year because I wore the same 4-5 pairs of socks over and over!

  3. YAY!!! They're finally finished!!! You deserve an non-fat, zero pointm imaginary cookie or a gold star. Your choice.
