I've Got My Monkey Yarn!

My yarn arrived yesterday. I think my pal will really like these colors and can't wait to get started on these socks.

Cherry Tree Hill-SockittoMe in Sugar Maple for the Monkey Socks
AND. . . .

Lorna's Laces-Shepherd Sock in Daffodil for her desired sock pattern.

I won't be casting on the Monkey Socks until Monday (Sunday at the earliest) but I will post a pic of that historic event: My first sock pal project!

Here's are two questions for the more experienced sock knitters: What is your favorite cast-on method for socks? What do you think works best for the Monkey pattern?

I generally do a long tail cast on over two needles, I have done maybe 6 pairs of Monkeys. I love both yarns, the LL is amazing!!

Great yarn colours!

I use a long tail cast on too. But I just do it loosely over 1 needle.
