The Hollyday is over!

Perhaps only second to the Red Bark Monkey socks, these monkeys may be the most photographed pair of socks to be featured here prior to being finished. I loved knitting these socks! The color brought such warmth to my day and my hands hate to say good-bye to them, but it's now time for my feet to have a chance at them.

I leave you with these last few images to complete the series of photos that comprise Hollyday Monkey socks.

Specs:

Pattern: Cookie A. Monkey Socks
Yarn: STR 'Hollyday' mediumweight
Needles: Addi Lace 2.5 mm, 2.25 mm for the heels
Mods: The 3-Ps: Picot, Partridge and Priscilla aka picot cuff, eye of partridge heel, and anatomical toes ala Priscilla Gibson-Roberts!

I love the hollyday color way and your monkey socks. I was surfing around looking for what others used hollyday on. Below is a link to my hollyday socks.
