Why yes, actually, I do realize that I'm a lame-o dork. But look at how fantastic my new Monkey socks are!
Aren't they so...stripey? Honestly, I had no idea it was a striping yarn until I was totally done. But then again, I've never been accused of being particularly observant. I have to admit, though, that I find it very strange that many sock yarns do not state on the label whether they are striping or just variegated. There is no way of knowing until you knit with it.
These are made of Tofutsies yarn, my new favorite sock yarn. I may have mentioned previously that it is machine washable and dryable which I think are very important qualities to have in a sock.
I never understood those crazy people who wasted all their knitting time on socks. Now I seem to have become one of them. It is extremely satisfying to knit something and have it fit excellently when you are done, which is SO much more likely with a pair of socks than a sweater.
