FO: Ravelympics Monkey Socks

I just completed my first pair of socks as part of the Ravelympics 2010!

I see orange everywhere now: tea tags, dishwasher liquid cap, magazine cover, Blogger logo, etc.

I put an extra effort this morning to redo the grafting of the toes of both feet because I was not 100% satisfied with the result and I had some time to do it. Now, I'm really glad I did because it looks so much neater.

Here are the pictures of my project:

Pattern: Monkey by Cookie A. (Knitty)
Yarn: Malabrigo sock, less than 1 skein
Needles: US 2 / 2.75 mm
Color: Terracotta
Start to finish: Feb. 12 to Feb. 28, 2010
(Ravelympics project)
For: Me
Modifications: None

I'm very very proud!

Have a great Sunday and enjoy the closing ceremonies!
