FO: Crazy Mom Monkeys

Crazy Mom Monkeys

Pattern: Los Monos Locos
Made For: Mother, for Mother's Day 2009
Yarn: Yarn Lust All That Glitters sock in Emerald 1 skein (really, I had left overs...) 63% Superwash Merino, 20% Silk, 15% Nylon and 2% Silver
Needles: Addi Turbo Lace 2.5 mm (US 1) 47"
Mods: I used a Turkish Cast on to do these two at a time. For the pattern, I just used the chart from the original Monkeys Pattern by Cookie A. For the ribbing, I required a little more elasticity, so I chose to do 2x2 ribbing, because the twisted rib has less elasticity.

All in all, I am very please with the way this yarn and pattern behaved. Gorgeous color, and also a great and easy to do pattern. Five stars. Buy Yarn Lust's stuff. It's great!
