FO: At Last!

blue sock monkeyCan you believe it? Who knew it would take this long to finish a pair of socks? I certainly didn’t. At last, my Sockapalooza 4 pal’s pair is all sewn up. I started these socks in early May and it took 3 weeks to finish Sock, the first. It took slightly less time for the mate. OK, not really, but I perceive it as less time. A girl’s gotta dream, eh?

So here they are, all ready for shipping on August 2nd. I even have a few little extras planned which I think my pal will approve of. What can I say? I’m a giver.

Mona Socks

Pattern: Mona, by Cookie A.
Yarn: Yarn All Over, Moss colorway, approximately 400 yards of superwash merino wool.
Modifications: Absolutely none. The pattern was perfect as is.

By the way, just in case you were wondering about the colorful bits sticking out from the top of the socks, I’ve gotten some fabulous new sock blockers, courtesy of Leggy Creations. They’re cats and mice partying and they are so cute, in a style that is vaguely reminiscent of Guy Buffet’s whimsical French waiter.
