Los Monos Locos Finished


I finished my Los Monos Locos socks this morning. I know, I know. I should be working on my Ravelmpics Japanese Cable Cushion Cover, but it was hot and I have no AC, and the thought of a pile of Alpaca yarn in my lap did not appeal to me!

I finished the knitting last night and the weaving in ends this morning. I knit each separately and once again one is bigger then the other. It is longer and wider because the stitches are larger. Ugh! I'm really going to have to try knitting 2 socks at the same time again. When I tried it back in February and March I was just going through the beginning of my break up when I couldn't eat, sleep, or hardly concentrate. Maybe now that I'm a bit better, I can do it.


I do like the Los Monos Locos pattern better then the original Monkey. The original has a lot of purling, where as Los Monos Locos does not.

I'm not too thrilled with the color of the yarn of these Blue Moon STR yarn. However, I did buy them at their seconds sale last year, so maybe they weren't up to snuff for them either. All my other skeins had wonderful colors though.

I think these socks will be my at home or in boots shoes. I don't think I'll be showing them off by wearing clogs.

But I am glad I'm done, because now I can start on another pair of socks. I think I'm going to start a pair with either my Duet sock yarn or my Noro sock yarn. The colors in both are beautiful. And I'm going to try knitting both at the same time. Please wish me luck on that!

They look great, interesting how one pools and the other doesn't. I've never done the original Monkey cos I'm a toe upper but I love LML.
