This pair, in all their lively color, was claimed by my daughter-in-law. I finished them while we were in Virginia over Christmas, and photographed them on the desk in our hotel room. I must have liked this colorway, because I ordered it on three different occasions, and then seeing it "live", I almost went YUCK! They are much prettier from a distance!
Have another Monkey on the needles in a Merino yarn, and a basic pair in Opal 6-ply. I found a neat little make-up bag that is my current favorite sock project carrier. It is clear plastic, rather squarish, with a zippered compartment in the top where markers, tape measure, yarn needle, crochet hook, and other tools can easily reside. The bottom has my pattern and it holds the whole bulky 6-play skein, and sock in progress without having to squeeze it in. I'll post a picture with the next completed pair in my run. Don't think I'll make the 52, because I'm also trying to finish a quilt for my Guild's show in early April, but I have surely enjoyed the run!
