Welcome!

Okay ... So what if I've never hosted a knit-a-long before? lol ... I've been wanting to do the Monkey sock pattern from the Winter 2006 issue of Knitty ... So why not start a knit-a-long?

Please bear with me as I try to get this together ...

If you would like to join the KAL, please leave a comment here ... And if anyone would be interested in helping me out ... I'd appreciate it!

Also ... if anyone is capable of making a button for the KAL ... that would be much appreciated, also!

Perfect timing! I just cast on today. Count me in (but don't look at me for a button: I'm hopeless with those).

Megin said...

Okay, considering I just frogged my monkey sock, I'm game. My poor boyfriend will probably pass out as he is a little tired of watching me frog every project I start. :(

Janet Ziegler said...

Okay, I'm game too. I just went through my stash and found the perfect yarn. Although with my stash it would be hard not to if you know what I mean.

Margie said...

I'm on! I think I have some Fleece Artist that will work well. Janet, I have the same stash problem (afvantage?) that you do.

Nancy P. said...

I'll play. I just bought some yarn in summer colors. About time I made myself a pair of socks. What's one more pair OTNs. :-)

Edna said...

I plan on starting this sock sometime in the next week or two, as soon as I finish the modified Lombard Street socks I am knitting. Sign me up please!

Susan said...

Sounds good. I just finished my first and loved the pattern so I can do another! Sign me up.

momsue84 said...

Sign me up. I've been wanting to knit these socks since the pattern came out.

catmum said...

I have a finished pair, and another OTN.

Bon said...

Great timing! I started a pair last night (but being the subversive knitter that I am, I'm doing them toe up!)

marysaline said...

Okay, you can count me in on this one. That pattern is lovely.
Is there a start and end date?

Sheri said...

I'm in! I love the look of these but haven't had the confidence to start them. With a group, I think I can do it. Thanks!!

Lovs2Knit said...

Count me in. I've got several hanks that would work perfectly....just have to decide which to use. :)

Tisha said...

I would love to join in - sounds like fun!!! I do have 3 pair of socks going right now - but have the needles for one more:) I've just learned the magic loop method and loving it - so that's what I'll use for the Monkey KAL.

Susan said...

I'm in...I want to make the monkey socks as my next pair. So what a great time for a KAL. Now to find the perfect monkey yarn!

Shelly said...

I would love to join! I have already started and have one finished. This will give me a reason to finish the set! www.mycreativeeye.blogspot.com

spinner Lynn said...

count me in I have been thinking about making these sock for awhile

Joan in Fair Oaks said...

Whoa, cool sock. Ok, I'm in. Now to find some yarn, print out the pattern....disappearing into stash cloud

Elizabeth said...

I've been wanting to start this sock so this is perfect timing. Please include me.

Carol said...

Perfect timing. I've got a hank of STR waiting for a project. Count me in! ;)

Jen said...

Hi, I'm midway through my second sock in Cherry Tree Hill Supersock. I love this pattern and I'm glad for a knitalong!

Rebecca said...

I'd like to join in, too. I've been wanting to make these, but I have a size 11 foot and I'd prefer to do them toe-up. I love all of the socks Cookie designs, I just wish she'd give options for bigger sizes. It's going to take a little figuring to make this sock fit my big old wedge foot, but I'm going to give it a try.

Lisa said...

Count me in! I'll have a peek through my stash...but a new KAL might give me a reason to have to buy more yarn...darn! :)

Donna said...

Count me in, too. I've been following all the comments and finally went to look at the pattern. I'll have to do a little stash diving, but I think I'll be okay.

AmyZ said...

I would be interested in joining in as well. The pattern is georgous. Let me know what else I need to do? Thanks.

crafty mama said...

if i can find the needles - i have so many socks going already! when are you going to start?

Katrina said...

Count me in! I've got some Fleece Artist here begging to be knit into Monkey socks.

Kenyetta said...

My favorite pattern, finished one pair and working on the second pair!

Rhonda said...

Sounds cool, please sign me up! Can't wait to get started - just finished a pair last night. :)

Molly, the BeanQueen said...

OK, I'll try it - those look like lovely sox - but I may be slow as I'm doing SFS, sox for a friend, sox for my grandson, & I work FULL time, too.
But I think I have some nice yarn for them.

I love the pattern Monkey sock, so this is a wonderful chance to do it with friends. I am very excited about working with this group. Thanks for doing it and we all will learn together. It looks like a lot people feel the same way, Deb

Hi. Is it too late to join? I have one pair done and started a new pair yesterday.

jsins said...

I just started working on a pair of monkey socks. I would love to join the KAL if it's still open.

frillgirl said...

I figure this KAL is closed, but I wanted to say hi. I've never done a KAL before, but I was listening to the Socksinthecity Podcast and she mentioned that there was a Monkey sock KAL. I should be finishing up my first Monkey sock soon. This will be second pair of knitted socks ever. It's fun!!!

J. said...

Can I still join? I'm knitting monkeys with Lorna's Laces Aslan colorway.

So I'm a late bloomer, but I am just about to start these puppies (just waiting on my yarn).

said...

So I'm a little slow on the upkeep, I just found this blog and am beyond wicked excited about it. These will be my second socks ever and my first on tiny needles. Hoping to join for the moral support if nothing else.
