Louise is having a contest to celebrate her birthday. Guess how many skeins of yarn she and her friend Rebecca will purchase while they’re in NYC this week and you could win some yarn! Submit your guesses before midnight, CST, January 27.
Abigail is having a contest – the person who submits the 100th photo of a Four Corners Dishcloth (a pattern Abigail wrote) will win a prize.
I was looking at some baby pictures of May and found this ghostly image from September:
In knitting news, I’ve started another pair of socks – you’re all shocked, right?! 😉 This pair isn’t for me but will be a gift. The yarn is Cascade’s Sassy Stripes Superwash, which, besides having a silly name, splits like crazy if you have to tink at all. Other than that, I like the yarn.
The stitch pattern is from Kristi’s free Gentleman’s Socks and I think it works really well with self-striping yarn.

Wow….groovy picture. See…she does have supernatural powers…
That sock is going to beautiful!
The socks are pretty! Another sock yarn new to me, too. So ghosting is one of May’s superpowers, then? 🙂
Oh well, at least there’s an improvement in the colour department. Don’t need to chew that one, May!
Chaos and May –
Try telling her that you need to chew on the yarn for “more fiber.” Point out that you’ve heard that fresh, sushi-grade tuna is a good source of “fiber.” If you can catch her when she’s really tired, you might just get away with it…
I like the yarn too!
SRM still on the loose?
You might want to check the Louise contest – I think you’re missing something. I’ve never seen “Sassy Stripes” before – very nice!
That is one crazy picture!!! I love it!
The socks look great, and I think you make a great point about the striping yarn. As much as I love self-striping yarn, it can be hard to make it work with a fancy stitch pattern. This pattern is just right with the stripes!
Cool yarn, great socks!
Love the sock yarn and pattern. Hopefully the “kids” will leave well enough alone.
Very nice detail shot on the socks – May and Chaos are acting like true sock yarn connoisseurs there 😉
Amazing line there in the ghosty image – where she moved and the highlight of her eye/whisker? streaked across the camera!
Hee hee, you can hardly tell Big Kitty from Wee Kitty any longer! Aw, May has an imaginary friend!
Yummy colours on the socks by the way. 🙂
Wow, it’s all so, dare I say it? Sassy!
I love the colors of that yarn! What colorway is it?
Love the picture of May.
Wonderful colors in that yarn!
ohhh i really like those stripes!!
spooky that pic of may looks like someone is floating by her.
Ooh May what big eyes you’ve got 🙂 All the bettr to find Mom’s yarn with/ 😉
Love the sock colors!
Oooo…love the colors of that sock!
Darn kitties never stand still when you don’t use a flash, lol…
May is the new Cheshire Cat!! I love it.
I LOVE those sock blockers!!
I don’t like the yarn in the skein but I admit it’s pretty in that pattern! Mmmm.
napoleon and i are pleased that chaos found his srm. naps is constantly losing his little mices beneath things, and also to earl’s mouth because earl hasn’t learned the concept of “mine” and “yours” it’s all “ours”… or just “his”
that sock is lookin mighty fine also. i’m going to start work on a sweater for early soon, and a NICE LONG WARM SCARF for me! which means i need another trip to the yarn store, yay!
That is a crazy looking pic of May. Wow! If only I knew how to make one like that 🙂
That stitch pattern is indeed great with stripes. I can’t wait to see the finished socks!
I really like how the yarn is striping, but the splitting? EEK. would drive me bonkers. Could we have a REAL baby photo of May please?
that sock is cool (and i know about as much about socks as mike ditka – i’m generalizing here, but you get the idea)
that pic is cooler than the other side of the pillow
All around cool post.
So is Chaos just trying to get May in trouble here? “No, no, really, she LIKES it when you puke up hairballs on the floor!” I’m pretty sure that my cats have conversations like this.
Great socks! I love that photo of May.
Cool photo of May. I really like those socks, nice stripes. It looks like May is starting to taste test all of your yarns.
Ohh, pretty sock. I ‘ve never seen that yarn before — where did you buy yours?
I was wondering how that yarn would knit up – it looks pretty cool! I like how you’ve modified the pattern to be toe-up, too. How do you do the heel? I haven’t found a toe-up flap heel pattern that looks right yet.
I “tink” all the time. 😉
*Gasp* @ the picture of May. She’s mastered the power to turn invisible!
scary picture, the transprant head cat.
Hey check out my blog today for a link for Holly Yarns, she’s having a charity drive for her local animal shelter. Maybe you could help spread the word????
i’ve got a ghostly picture too in my flickr
Shocked, utterly shocked. The stripes are coming out nicely.
That is an odd pic of Mayhem!
I love your sock blockers, very fitting!
Here is another knitting story from Chicago. Clearly, someone on the Chicagoist staff is a knitter!
I love the spooky picture! And the way there is a little swirl in the towel (?) behind May where her eye would be just adds to the spooky look.
ooops, forgot the link:
Did Cascade just come out with that? I’ve never seen it before.
Love the socks. They are striping really well and the colors are great.
Hope you find your energy again soon.
SRM is more of a ghost than May is… May being rather visible, and SRM being in the habit of disappearing for stretches of time and then mysteriously and randomly (and briefly) appearing out of nowhere!
The sock form! I never knew that’s how you did it!!! It makes perfect sense now.
Love the color of the sock yarn!
Weird picture of May, now ya see me, now ya don’t.
Crap, I lost my ear again.
