Beautiful socks! The pattern and the colorway is a lovely match.

BTW, I know what you mean by the stomach muscle workout. ;)

Beautiful. Love the colourway.

I really love this pattern - it is a pure joy to knit and looks so much more complicated than it is.

Beautiful socks! I love that colorway!

I have the pattern for these and yarn just have too many other projects that I want to do at the moment.

Those came out beautifully! It's so hard to know whether variegated yarn and a lace stitch pattern will work together, but they really did in this case. Lovely and very cozy looking.

Marie, they're beautiful!!

Like everyone's said, the colorway and that pattern are a stunning match.

I'm working on those right now, too, but have only gotten a few repeats done on the first leg. It'll be a while, as my lace stole is occupying all of my time.

Speaking of that, I couldn't find your email address on your page anywhere, so I'll give you mine: myyarns@gmail.com. I would love if you could email me about that Forest Path. I'm intrigued.


Again, those are the prettiest Monkey socks I've seen yet. Seriously.

Those look great! I was going to knit this pattern with a darker colorway, but I really like the colors in yours, very spring time.

Great socks! I love the first picture - I'd be tempted to frame it and hang it on my wall.
