FO: Cloud-Flying Monkeys

30 Oct

I am developing a bad habit of forgetting about a project as soon as it’s off the needles (the Brown Jo Sharp also still needs a proper send-off. Just as soon as I can pin Tech Support down to do a proper photo shoot, I promise!) I finally finished these on the 16th, but haven’t officially FO’d them here:

Cloud-Flying Monkeys

The Vital Statistics:
Monkey by Cookie A. for Knitty
Yarn: Collinette Jitterbug, in “Mist”, Patons Patonyle in black for toe.
Needles: 2.75mm Knitpicks classic circular, changed to 2.5mm for foot
Modifications: Tubular cast-on, extra length on the ribbing (yes, painfully aware that this is why I ran out of yarn for the toes), otherwise I just went with the pattern. I generally do an extra pattern repeat in the leg, too, but this time I didn’t – don’t even know why, it just looked right with six repeats. Can you imagine how much worse things would have turned out if I’d done the seventh rep? [Shudders]

    Nobody would ever have noticed the black toes if you hadn’t mentioned them – they look like they belong.
