Still monkeying around

When I finished the Monkey socks over a month ago, it looked like there was enough yarn leftover for one more sock. And there was. Just.

Third Monkey, originally uploaded by alicethelma.

And so I can happily report that two balls of Knit Picks Essential Solid (231 yards/50 grams) will yield three socks of the Monkey variety if knitted as written save for the short row heel substitution and when knitted on size 0 needles in the same relaxed manner that I do. Got that? 

I am left with a tail of about 24 inches with which to weave the toe. Amazing how it all worked out.

Note: I think this color, Petunia, has been discontinued. Sorry!
