Monkeys in Oregon...

These lovely Monkeys have landed here in Hillsboro, Oregon. And they fit perfectly. I love them!!! They were knitted by the talented Jen of Monkey Knits. Little Nicholas saw the lil monkey and instantly grabbed it for hugs and kisses. Besides the great socks, there was the cute lil monkey bag, the lil stuffed monkey, monkey stitch markers, size 1 Crystal Palace DPNs, a cute monkey pen, a lil pad of monkey paper and hand-dyed yarn by Jen herself. The colors kinda remind me Starburst candies. I love everything. Thank you Jen!!!

What a WONDERFUL package! And, I see you received my very favorite needles, Crystal Palace. The socks are gorgeous.

Yay! I'm glad that you enjoyed the package. I had so much fun putting it together. I forgot to include the yarn info in the package... The yarn I used for the socks was Koigu (KPPPM). I can't recall the color number offhand, but it's the same exact colorway that someone else on this blog used. Anyway, it's one of my favorite yarns to work with. I hope you enjoy wearing them!
