Cankels- A derogatory slang term for fat ankles, where it is hard to tell where the ankle starts and the calf ends.
Like being overdue isn’t rough enough. Now I’ve got to retain water in my ankles.
So, my friends, due to this unforseen sneak attack of the evil cankles, I can only show you my finished Monkey Socks on sock blockers, and not my feet. I wouldn’t want to give you nightmares!
Pattern: Monkey Socks
Yarn: Merino 4 Ply from The Knittery
Needles: Size 2 DPNs
Started October 1, 2007
Finished November 2, 2007
I am officially into making socks now. This pattern was alot of fun and knit up rather quickly (even considering my side projects). The 11 row lace pattern repeat keeps your interest and before you know it, time to turn the heel!
I’m not quite sure what socks I will make next, I have a few in mind (Tyrolean Stockings from IK and I really want a Nancy Bush book) but none that I currently have yarn for. I will most likely try to clear up a few WIPS and work on my stash until after Christmas, that is if I have any time to knit IF this child is ever born… and right now I feel like I will be pregnant forever….
