Menehune Cobblestone Socks finished

I started these socks some time ago, but other projects kept getting in the way. This morning, I finally finished them! YAHOO!! So, here they are:

They are knit with Katia Mississippi 3 (cotton/acrylic yarn) on size 0 needles. The pattern is available on the Crystal Palace Yarn site and is called the Menehune Cobblestones. The pattern calls for Panda Cotton and I may knit another pair out of that yarn. Now I'll pick up the second of my Pomatomus socks and finish it. Then I can start several new socks (it's my incentive to finish the Pomatomus - they are such nice socks)!!

Here is my knitting fan. His name is Peppy and he often sits and watches me knit - sometimes likes to play with the yarn. He's 15.5 years old.

The socks looks great.
Peppy is very handsome, and looks great for his age.

What a sweet cat!!

This is the way I am answering my comments since I'm in NJ and don't have access to my email. The monkeys have been quite friendly - I can't seem to stop playing with them. Dare I admit that I may have an addictive personality?? Who me??? I'd say go for it and play with the monkeys too!!
