Green Monkey Socks

I finished the Monkey Socks in a lovely shade of green - probably better to call then Vines and Leaves Socks as that is a better description of the lace pattern. They will go to my friend's daughter who is ill with Lyme disease, pauvre fille :-(
The pattern is by sock designer extraordinaire Cooke A., and was originally published online in Knitty Magazine in the Winter 2006 issue
