I've had this yarn in my stash forever. I don't think I would have ever used it because it looks so muddled. Thanks to Ravelry where you can look up what other people did with a particular yarn, I saw some monkeys that looked pretty good so I decided to try this pattern. I like it alot. It looks good and is a fast easily memorized knit.

I started these:

The Pattern is from More Sensational Knitted Socks and is called Crosshatch Lace. The yarn is Black Bunny Merino/Tencel. It's very soft and pretty. I am really interested to see how it will wear.
