I grafted the toe of Monkey the Second last night at 9.04pm, while watching Lizzie Bennet give Darcy what-for in the drawing room at Hunsford Parsonage.

That means I knit a pair of socks in seven days flat. I can hardly believe it myself! But here’s the proof:


Irrepressible indeed.

The Vital Statistics:
Monkey by Cookie A for Knitty
Yarn: The Knitting Ninja’s Cashmerino sock yarn in colourway “Camo”
Needles: 3.00mm Knitpicks Harmony circular, magic loop method.
Modifications: Eye of partridge heel flap, but otherwise, I followed the pattern pretty much straight up.

Oh, and here’s to a very Woolly New Year for us all. Can you believe that this time last year I was blogless and didn’t know any of you guys? It feels like we’ve been friends for ever!

See you in 2008.
