  1. The Mystery Monkey Socks are sooo cute! Now I need to buy the yarn to knit them. Thanks for the pattern, Rebecca!

  2. I just finished a tiny pair of baby boy socks (Grandma in June!..) and need to finish a baby afghan…then…I want to make these cute socks!!
    Please tell me what yarn you are using…please please no time to guess shop. Thanks also for the pattern.

  3. Yay, yay, YAY! I’ve been waiting for part 3. Started another pair of socks in the interim. I really should have worked the second sock to the end of Part 2, but just thought of it. Oh well. Thanks a bunch!

  4. Hullo hullo. On the monkey sock swap, can I get you to link me on the sidebar as pixie instead of by my actual name (which you have in my email)? I don’t usually give my real name to people unless they’re sending something to me (so my secret monkey pal is welcome to have it). Thank you!
