Monkey socks in blue

Last spring I knit a pair of Cookie A.'s Monkey socks for my friend Pam's daughter, Taryn, in green sock wool. Then at Sock Summit 2011 in Portland I bought a copy of Cookie A.'s book Knit Sock Love and my goal for 2012 is to knit every sock in the book. I started out easy by making another pair of Monkeys, this time for myself, in SweetGeorgia's Tough Love sock yarn in colour way Coal Harbour.
