I have been spending a small amount of time every day working on the Monkey Socks for Camp Loopy. There is visible progress. I’m reaching the point where I’m going to start weighing the yarn. I want to be sure I reach the 400 yard requirement which is a challenge in and of itself when knitting socks.
I’ve been knitting socks since before I had a blog, which was 17 years in March. I love everything about knitting them. They’re magical knitting to me. Along the way I’ve knit a fair number of patterns that I would consider classics. Monkey socks and their cousin No Purl Monkeys are surely classics. Other patterns that fall into this category are Hermione’s Everyday Socks, Broadripple, Vanilla Latte Socks, Blueberry Waffle Socks, and Jaywalker. Which sock patterns do you consider classics?
