Sock Yarn KAL

Look what I've decided to take part in!

I've been a fan of the My Sister's Knitter blog for a while, and so when I saw Andi was hosting this Knit-A-Long, and I wanted an excuse to cast on another pair of socks, I thought this would be perfect!
I've never taken part in a KAL before, and guess what? I was missing out!! It is so lovely to join a community of other knitters all working on similar things... everything from shawls to sweaters to socks, but all sharing in a love of sock yarn!

So what am I working on?
I have decided to knit another pair of Monkey Socks, by Cookie A. (Pattern info HERE), with some modifications to last time.

I knit my last pair on 2.5mm needles, and they turned out just a little bit baggy, so this time I have gone down a needle size to see if that helps. Also, the heel flap on the pattern is plain stockinette, but after knitting a few pairs with a ribbed heel, I have decided I like that better, so will be doing a ribbed heel on these socks too :-)

I am loving how these are turning out - the yarn is lovely and soft, and the pattern is fun and quick to knit!
