This post is all about the socks, I managed to finish three pairs during May. I'm so pleased that the Must Stash girls organised this great event. If you check back on the Must Stash Podcast Ravelry board, you can still find all of the tips, tutorials and videos for sock knitters, from beginners to intermediate.
I finished my No Purl Monkey's, right on the deadline and I love them, they are so much fun to wear. I love the sherbert colours, the yarn is Twisted Limone in Sherbert Dip. The original pattern by Cookie A which is a free pattern on Knitty, used purl stitches in between the V's but I used Crafty Pancakes version which just uses knit stitches, I also did an Afterthought heel so I didn't break up the stripes. I would highly recommend the Afterthought Heel pattern by Laura Linneman, it is very well written and was easy to follow, there is also a video tutorial to go with it.
I knit cuff down and used DPNs for the first time, thanks to the Month of Socks, and the girls encouraging us to try something new. I've got to say, the cuff down seem to fit my feet so much better, these socks are so comfy on. I will still knit toe up if I like the pattern but I prefer cuff down now and will be my sock of choice.
I also finished these stripy Vanilla socks that I started back in February, again using Twisted Limone self striping yarn. It took me so long as I only picked them up if I needed something I didn't have to concentrate on but I did find them quite boring, I definitely like something with a pattern.
Then finally the Jesse socks, which you saw here and they are the third pair completed in the month of May. I said I wanted to complete 12 pair of socks over 12 months, I've completed six pairs so I'm well on track.
Check out Tami's blog for more FO's, this week. Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend.

Now I'm wondering if you making all those gorgeous socks is because you knew we'd be having a rotten start to summer? You are certainly going to get use out of them and no doubt you could sell a few pairs too... They're lovely! Have a warm weekend!
That is a lot of knitting. They all look lovely.
All of your socks look so great! I could not choose between them, but I hope that you love them all too. xx
Love, love your socks. The first paper reminds me of those unicorn horn shaped lollipops you would see at Disneyland or something.
love them all but especially your monkey's!
