We’re taking a trip to Japan in a couple of months and my sister is graciously letting us stay with her. She’s also been great with suggestions of things to do. The best part is we’ll get to partake of her sushi equity and the sushi chef has even offered to take us with him to his fish market.
So, because she liked the other 2 pairs of socks I’ve knit for her, I thought another pair would serve as a good thank you gift. The last 2 pairs were just plain vanilla socks. This time I wanted to do something a little more exciting, and I settled on Cookie A.’s Monkey pattern. The yarn I’m using is ShubuiKnits Sock in the Rappongi colorway. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity when I found out they had a colorway called Rappongi as both my sister and the Husband have told me of drinking trips to the Rappongi district. I remember something about heading home on the trains as business people are heading into work. The colors are eye-searing pink and orange, and my sister told me she loves it.
I’m just glad that I’ve started well enough in advance that I shouldn’t be rushing to finish them before our trip.
