Sock-it-to-me Sunday

And now for the weekly sock update. The good news is that sock #1 of the Monkey set is complete. It was done with Knit Picks size 1 (2.5 mm) 24 inch circulars. I am not too sure if I like making socks with the circular needles. I might just stick with DPNs. And with that in mind, I did order a set of 2.5 mm DPNs from The Loopy Ewe along with one of Cookie's sock patterns - the Twisted Flower sock. And I already have the yarn picked out for it. I plan on using a hank of Fearless Fibers Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Midnight Blue colorway. I also managed to make progress on my Jaywalkers and am almost complete with the gusset on sock #1. But sadly, I made no progress on the Big Black Socks. Hopefully this week, I can get some of it done. But a 12 inch leg goes by very slowly in plain stockinette stitch with 2.25 mm DPNs.
