More monkeys

Another pair of Monkey Socks. This version is knitted without any of the purl stitches.

The no-purl pattern made these socks quicker to knit, but still kept a nice simple lace pattern. The pattern is really hidden by the stripes in this yarn, which is Hazel Knits sock yarn in the Bobbin's Nest colour which was created especially for Bobbin's Nest Studio in Santa Clara. The boys have really admired the socks - and I'm very pleased with them. I think the pattern creates an almost deco effect with the blue and brown waves and the yarn is lovely.
