(Opinion time.) I know that Monkeys are a VERY popular sock pattern and lots of people have knit more than one. I'm personally not feeling the love with the Monkey design. There's nothing wrong with the design, it's not difficult, it's working in this multicolored sock yarn with no problems, I'm just not enjoying knitting it. I seriously considered frogging the entire first sock and reknitting it with another pattern just so I wouldn't have to knit a second Monkey sock. I decided against it so I could say I've knit a full pair of Monkeys, not for a knitting trophy (which I'm sure is going to be delivered any day now), but so I wouldn't wonder later why I hadn't finished my Monkeys and decide to knit another pair due to my short memory. For those of you that love Monkeys, knit them to your heart's content. For myself, this will be the only pair of Monkeys I knit and I can't wait to finish them.
