I don't think I blogged about these mismatched Monkeys when I finished them -- probably out of embarrassment. See how the one on the left is a little shorter? Yup.
When I knit the first sock, I actually remembered to note what needle size I used on my project page on Ravelry. I suffered from a minor case of Second Sock Syndrome, so it took me a while to get around to knitting the second sock...but do you think I bothered to double-check what needle I should be using? Nope.
You'd think I would have noticed that the second sock was a little more snug than the first, but I chalked the difference up to the fact that I had tried the first one on a lot and stretched it out. Riiiiiight.
Also, is this linoleum ugly, or what? I think whoever picked it out must have thought it would be great, because dirt doesn't really show. The flaw in that logic is that it always looks dirty.
