Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

Mom's Monas Finished


Done, and done a day before needed.


I wasn't sure I was going to like this stitch pattern when I started these socks, but I do like it very much.

The ribbing travels every twelve rows, but it still works to supply a nice snug fit. The overall effect is a pretty lace pattern that isn't going to sag and bag. So, now I have another favorite Cookie A. sock pattern.

Pattern: Mona from Knit. Sock. Love. by Cookie A.

Yarn: Stalwart Sock from Slackford Studio. 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon 4 Ply Fingering Weight Sock Yarn.

Color: Dorothy's Destiny.

Needles: Options 2.50mm circulars.

Very pretty! I need to buckle down and finish my boring stockinette socks so I can do something more interesting.

I do like that. The green is beautiful, deep and rich.

I love those cookie a. creations! I have yet to try your yarn recommendation--my stash has gotten in the way, and I'm trying to be a good girl about it.

Very pretty! I haven't knit CookieA's socks in awhile but her patterns are my favorite. I need to start knitting them again.

Nice socks; I like both pairs and especially the lighter green ones. I need to dig into that Cookie A. book. Hope you're feeling all better now.
