My monkey socks are almost done for my Monkey pal. I have never used the tofutsies before and I can't say it is my favorite yarn, but it is very soft. It has a tendency to split and I found myself unraveling to pick up a split stitch. I love the color which my camera has not justice to. It is a little richer with the hot pink....I have found some really precious monkey things which I won't reveal here. Just a little hint....these Monkey socks have travel many miles each day as I knit in the morning and the evening...ummmm.....could I be one of those crazy commuters?
