The sock would be Monkey in a microfiber yarn. The yarn might be a total bust for socks because it's not very elastic, but I'm willing to give it a shot. I checked Ravelry to see if others had used this yarn for sock-making and many knitters have, so I feel good enough about the odds to keep going.
The pattern is beautifully simple and easily memorized; my favorite kind!
