I finished one of the Monkey socks last night. See! These aren't great pictures, but you get the idea. Not bad for my first attempt at making a "real" sock. I have to say, it's one of the most comfy socks my foot has ever worn. I'm struggling with my selfish little self to actually give it away. It took me like a month to knit. I'm so rotten! I am going to give it away though, because deep down inside I know it's better to give than to receive. I just hope it doesn't take me another month to knit the mate. At this rate, if I want to knit Christmas presents for more than one person I'll have to start knitting in February in order to have everything done by December.
