Pattern - Carolina, Last Queen of Naples by Momma-Monkey in Scout Swag colorway Strawberry Quick
Started 6/15 - Ended 8/23 (I made two pairs for Sockapalooza4 and a pair for Cait in that time span)
Mods - tried out the Eye of Partridge heel. The colorway didn't make it look so good. I think I'll try it next time on some solid yarn.
Now to start the second of the pair of Monkey's in the bizzaro STR Scottish Highlands? Or make a pair of ankle socks out of the Chewy Spaghetti stuff? Hmm..... I think Chewy Spaghetti wins!

Do you consider yourself a beginning sock knitter, an intermediate, or have you been doing this so long you could probably knit a pair in your sleep?
I would say I am an intermediate sock knitter. I have yet to find a sock pattern that intimidates me to the point that I won't try it. I have been knitting for about 2 years now and have at least 12 pairs of socks finished (and two on the needles). Socks don't scare me!
Shoe Size: US 8
Foot circumference: 8.5"
Foot length: 9.5" tip of toe to heel
What colors do you love? I love blues and pinks and purples
Do you prefer solids or variegated? No preference =)
Do you prefer wool, cotton or acrylic yarn? I prefer wool. Cotton would also be good, but acrylic makes my feet sweat horribly =/
What colors would you never wear? On my feet? Any colors are acceptable on my feet
What are your favorite brands of yarn? Socks That Rock, Lorna's Laces

Cookie A. Patterns:
Which of her patterns have you already knit? Monkey & Hedera
Which pattern(s) would you like to knit and don’t already own? Twisted Flower or Thelonious look nice, but I think I would really like to try Pomatomus next.
Other pertinent information:
Would you be willing to have an international Monkey Pal or do you prefer one in the US? International or one in the US is fine.
Do you have any allergies? Nope
Will your knitting be exposed to smoke or animals? No smoke, I do I have a dog.
Are you on Ravelry yet? If you don’t mind having new friends, what is your Ravelry name? Not on Ravelry. I think I'm going to wait a bit longer.
