Monkey see monkey do monkey DONE!

I finished my bi-monthly KAL socks in good time before the end of the month.

The ever popular Monkeys by Cookie A. No-purl version and an eye of partridge heel. Just in case anyone wanted to know this is the stitch pattern

Row 1 (RS): Sl1, k1, sl1; repeat from to end.
Row 2: Sl 1 purlwise, p to end.
Row 3: Sl 1 purlwise, k1, k1, sl1; repeat from to last 2 sts, k2.
Row 4: As per row 2

It makes the finished fabric that little bit more cushioned on the heel, plus I think it's a little harder wearing too. I don't tend to wear my socks through but I like the extra squidge

Doesn't the no-purl pattern look lovely.

I have already cast on for my next pair in the KAL - socks with owls on!
