FO: Monkey Socks

I love everything about these socks! The pattern is easy and gorgeous (and free!). The yarn has so many pretty colors, it's easy-care, cheap, and all around was great to work with. One of my favorite things about these socks is that the pattern leaves some eyelets that let your feet breathe a bit on warmer days, but it still feels like a nice solid sock, not overly lacey.
