Sock Candy…

…or Eye Candy…whatever.

I finished three pairs of socks on Wednesday this week:

Jaywalkers on the side
Jaywalkers part...

Jaywalkers – done from the toe-up with a Turkish cast-on, a Sherman heel and a picot bind-off (which I hate with the fire of a thousand suns. It looks great and all but ohman was it a bitch to pull off) in ArtYarns Ultramerino4. This is like the eleventy-millionth pair of Jaywalkers that I have knit and there is only one thing different about this pair. They fit.

It’s a freaking. miracle.

ETA: The Jaywalkers were knit by hand – not on the CSM (I wish!) and they took me weeks to finish. These were my Lake George knitting. Sorry for any confusion…

CSM socks
CSM Socks

These are a lovely design that I threw together on the CSM when I decided that this Cherry Tree Hill in ‘Earth’ deserved better than just a plain old cranked sock. With a picot hem – much easier to do on the machine. Trust me on this.

Ribbed...YES RIBBED CSM Socks
CSM Socks

Last but definitely not least we have a pair of ribbed – YES I SAID RIBBED – socks from the CSM in the lovely ‘Thistle’ colorway from Blue Moon Fiber Arts.

I am so fricken happy that I managed to finally get the ribber to work on the CSM. The ‘mock’ rib just wasn’t doing it for me and damnit, I wanted ribbed socks!

So I decided that Wednesday was the day. I made that ribber my bitch. Heh. ;o)
