My friend, Jean, and I went to the Madison monthly crank-in this Saturday and Mike was there.  Mike’s a blogger and took photos of the event that he posted in his blog (the link is above).  He has a beautiful machine, it’s a NZAK and had also made some gorgeous tubies (sock blanks made on a CSM).  It’s so nice to have photos of the places you go and the people you meet, Mike’s a dedicated blogger and I’ve got lots to learn from him about this blogging thing.  He also took a photo of me and the blanks I brought to show everyone there, so go check out his blog and say hello.

Socks made with a circular sock machine

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on April 21, 2009

csm_red-purple-green-bank-socks-details1Here’s the finished socks that I made on my LeGare sock machine. I couldn’t get the colors to show up well in the photographs, the red sock has deep reds and burnt oranges in it and the blue sock had brilliant purples and golden browns in it.
