What the HK is on your Needles Vol. 4

In April of this year, at least two Ravelry group ran Knitalongs featuring the pattern Mona by the amazing sock designer, Cookie A. Mona is a pattern from Cookie's latest book, Knit.Sock.Love, a must have book for your knitting book collection. In the book, the sample of Mona is knit in Hazel Knits Artisan sock, and, as a result, several HK versions of Mona were completed over the last couple of months. I thought it would be fun to highlight a few of those projects and see how the pattern knits up in the various different colours.

Hannah (ravname: chanala) knit her Mona's in a recent HK club colour, Pick Me. I'm currently knitting with this colour now, and love Hannah's choice.



Tash (ravname: Coxabey) chose to knit her Mona's in another club colour, Cloudy Day. They look gorgeous hanging out in the garden.



Arlene (ravname: arlenemarie) went for an older club colour (I'm seeing a trend here) and knit her Mona's in Mango Smoothie. You can really see the pattern definition in this colour.



Sarah (ravname: sarahbelle) knit her Mona's in a regular colour, Pacific and they look great!



Jill (ravname: fruitbat) knit her Mona's in Lochness and called them "Where's Nessie?" I'm a huge fan of Lochness. I love the mottled colours and they look fantastic in this sock.



And finally, Erin (ravname: erinkramer) chose to follow Cookie's example and knit her Mona's in Jay Blue. They look just as good as the models in the book.



Thanks to everyone for allowing me to share their projects. Mona (and most of Cookie's socks) are on my "to knit" list.
