These are my October socks for the SAM 2008 KAL. I started "some" socks back on Aug. 18 ... didn't know what pattern I would use, but co 64 sts and did 1x1 rib for 12 rows and set them aside. Sept. 30 came and I picked up the circ holding the ribbing for my two socks. The decision was made to create a pair of Monkey socks for myself .... I had gifted dd with a pair a couple of years ago. The yarn is STR mediumweight in the Rolling Stone colorway. DH even made a comment that he liked the color and didn't think I had ever knit such a pretty sock.
