FO Friday: Dunkin Monkeys

Months ago, I don’t even remember when, I went to my most local LYS needing a little retail therapy and a circular needle. From across the small but crowded room I spotted this yarn. I can’t even remember the brand and the label is missing. I do know the color name was Dunkin.

I couldn’t decide what pattern to use. I was still looking for something that would spark my mojo. This led me back to patterns that I love. I decided on No Purl Monkeys, a variation on Cookie A’s Monkey socks which is available for free on Knitty. (Basically you knit all the purl stitches in the pattern.) The combination of yarn and pattern were a perfect match. I still dragged my feet about getting them done. It was at least 6 months from cast on to bind off. Once they were done I put them right on and I was so glad I’d powered through to the end. I’ve worn them a handful of times and smile every time I see them.

Yes, that’s a hairy Myles sulking in the background of the photo. This is how he acts when The Husband goes out. He lays at the end of the couch with one eye on the back door. Myles is in desperate need of a haircut. Unfortunately we are on hold until the clipper blades are returned from the sharpener. Myles hopes they’re lost and never return.

Edited to add: After a trip through the blog looking for something else I found the information on this yarn! The yarn is It’s Artistic by Abi in self-striping socks in the Dunkin Donuts colorway. It would appear I cast these on some time before May 2022. The blog never forgets unlike me who can’t remember anything.

    This yarn is so perfect for this pattern. I like how the stitch texture pushes and pulls the yarn’s stripes into waviness.
