FO: Cloud-Flying Monkeys

Remember these? I finished them on the 16th October, but forgot to post them here. The wonderful, fabulous, blog-buddy-par-excellence Kate came to my rescue with a little bit of black Patonyle for the toes.

Pattern: Monkey by Cookie A. for Knitty
Yarn: Collinette Jitterbug, in “Mist”, Patons Patonyle in black for toe.
Needles: 2.75mm, changed to 2.5mm for foot.
Modifications: Tubular cast-on, extra length on the ribbing (yes, painfully aware that this is why I ran out of yarn for the toes), otherwise I just went with the pattern. I generally do an extra pattern repeat in the leg, too, but this time I didn’t - don’t even know why, it just looked right with six repeats. Can you imagine how much worse things would have turned out if I’d done the seventh rep? [Shudders]
