Back to Knitting Fridays

It seems like it has been forever since
I have posted any knitting!
For being gone from the knitting posts for
Two weeks, I don't have a lot to show.

First, I am making progress on my latest
Sock Monkey.

I am working on the tail and will then
stuff and attach it as well as the arms.
Then just the ears and mouth are left to knit and attach.

I started working on another pair of socks.

I have not worked with the 
Paton Kroy Sock yarn before
and it isn't bad. 
It's not as soft as some, but I really like the
I'm fascinated that it can be dyed to stripe so evenly.

I do have a finish!!

I added the Afterthought Heel to these socks
and they are done!
I don't know why I was putting off doing the heels.
They are quite easy to do.

Visit Patchwork Times to see what others are knitting.

Have a great Friday!!

The socks look great, both the finished pair and the one on the needles. I have knit several pairs with Kroy. I agree that it's not as soft, but it has worn very well. My Kroy socks are thicker than others done with softer fingering yarn.

Cute monkey and lovely socks! If you can make socks, you can make that sweater.

Your orange socks are right up my alley!

I made my first pair of socks from Kroy yarn. They are about 4years old and they are still like new and they wash so well.

I really like both pairs of your socks. I've never heard of Kroy yarn, but I'm going to look for it. Where do you buy yours? I'm still learning to do socks and can't wait to actually finish a pair.

Those socks are great! I love the way the yarn is striping. Your monkey's going to be very cute, too.
