First Monkey socks

I’ve been keeping this a secret so I was not able to post progress pictures.  Now the secret is out, and the monkeys can be blogged.

My coworker M is retiring after 38 yrs of working at our university.  I am going to miss her terribly.  I wanted to give her something to remember us by, something that would be my way of giving her a hug even when I was not seeing her daily.  Since she frequently has mentioned black and red socks, I decided that would be the perfect gift.  But plain socks would not do, they had to be a little fancy, a little fun.  So I chose the Monkey pattern.  I’ve gotten quite addicted to this pattern and am well into a second pair of socks, but I think that these red and black monkeys are just the coolest!
