Made Myself Some Mona's - Kind Of
Last week when I sat down in my knitting spot late in the evening, I was tired and needed something easy to knit. Looking around, I spotted the leftover Dorothy's Destiny from Mom's Birthday Monas. It wasn't going to be enough for a complete pair of socks, but I knew I had two other little balls of left over Dorothy's Destiny across the room in a bin to finish the foot.
I quickly sketched out the Mona stitch pattern reducing the stitch repeat from 16 to 14, so I could knit a pair for myself on 56 stitches, cast on, and started knitting without ever having to get up out of my seat.
These will never be prize winning socks because the change in dyelots is very obvious.
I do like the 14 stitch repeat pattern very much and will use it again.
This is a very pretty stitch pattern for as much ribbing as it has in it and the ribbing sections make for a nice snug fit.
