If you didn’t hate me on Friday…

…you’re gonna hate me now.  ;o)

After knitting three pairs in a day on Thursday of last week I knit one more pair on my 54 stitch cylinder with a picot edge:

CSM Socks - Mega Boots Stretch

(Mega Boots Stretch is the yarn and I just realized that there’s fuzz stuck to them in the picture…sorry) and after that, decided to get more daring in my sock knitting on the CSM.  I switched to the 72 stitch cylinder and prepared to tackle my nemesis.  The ribber.

I kicked that ribber’s ass this weekend.  Three times.

CSM Socks - Autumn House Farms
CSM Socks - Step
CSM Socks - Fannie's Fingering Weight

From Left to Right:

1.  Autumn House Farms Super Merino in “Moss Aget” (that’s what’s written on the tag.  I swear. I’m pretty sure it’s supposed to be Agate.) in a 3x1x1 rib – sorry for the fuzzy pic…these did not want to be photographed this morning.

2.  Austermann Step in a 3×1 rib

3.  Fannie’s Fingering Weight in “Rhapsody” in a 3×1 rib

I decided that I like the 3x1x1 rib – kind of reminiscent of the Yarrow Ribbed sock from Vintage socks.  I’ll be making more of these.  Possibly even today…

Don’t hate me cuz I’m prolific, k? ;o)

Eye Candy Friday…

…the one with all the socks.  ;o)

Yesterday, I decided I wanted to channel a bit of Cookie into my knitting.  I had the pink yarn but needed some way to up my speed.  I decided the only way I could come close to her speed was to break out the CSM. ;op I finally managed to get to cranking at about noon and by bedtime I had these all finished:

Chameleon Colorworks Socks
Chewy Spaghetti CSM Socks
Rhinebeck Socks!

From left to right:

1. Chameleon Colorworks ‘Evolution’ yarn in the colorway Flamingo Sunrise (these are quite possible the softest socks EVER.)

2. Chewy Spaghetti ‘Spaghettoni II’ in the colorway Sultry

3.  Steam Valley Fiber Hand Dyed Sock Yarn, no colorway listed.  (purchased at Rhinebeck ’08)

Not bad for a day’s work.  This is my favorite kind of eye candy!  ;o)

Can you believe it?

Two FO posts in a ROW.  I think this might be a personal record.

Mama Janes - Finished!

These are the Mama Jane slippers that I started last week using some Manos I got from Risa in a trade at W.O.O.L..  These were in a holding pattern for a bit because I needed to get to the store to purchase the buttons:

Mama Janes - the Button

I’m wearing these all the time since it’s kind of cold in my house – in fact, I’m wearing these and my Central Park Hoodie at this very moment.  ;o)  The  were a quick knit and it only took one skein of Manos.  So, if you have one skein kicking around or if you have a small amount of handspun, these would be perfect.  [Raveled here]

Oh and a quickie link – those geniuses at Google have developed a map that will show you voter registration information for your area based on your address.  So, you put in your address and up pops info on how to register to vote and when the cutoff is to make it for this election.  How cool is that?
