Hex

This isn't my sixth photo or anything but this is the sixth pair of Monkeys that I've cast on.

Minty Monkey

You might wonder why, when there are 295 pages of sock patterns on Ravelry, I've knit the same pair of socks 6 times but it turns out that, when it comes to socks, I'm a product knitter. It's very difficult when I go to my sock drawer and feel that I need more socks to cast on anything else when I know that I can churn out a pair of perfectly fitting geometric lace socks in under a week. And that's why I've already got the yarn lined up for pairs number seven and eight as soon as I'm done with these.

Hi there, how are you? My name is pete and i am the web editor for Medecins Sans Frontieres in the UK. Noticed you'd sent a few visitors to our site, so just wanted to say thanks for the support! Also, you might be interested in our new project p/hop - started by knitters :-)

Whoops, just realised that wasn't the first time I've thanked you. Having an idiot day! Thanks again (x3)
