Sock INSANITY!!!!!

I have a couple of *coughcougholdcough* FOs to show. First one is a felted baby hat from a Pick Up Sticks pattern. Yes, this is the hat of furry doom that was blogged about before. Also some cute little booties.

These are my Finding Nemo socks. The yarn is Knitpicks Sock Memories in the Easter colorway, and the pattern is ... oh, crap. What is it? Something from Knitting Vintage Socks. I traded away the book, so I don't know. It's the purple one in the book. LOL I altered the pattern to accommodate a larger gauge, and I did these socks two at once on magic loop. Yeah, NEVER doing that again.

This is a WIP that I just started. Yes, it's RPM from Knitty. It's Socks That Rock Fire on the Mountain, and it's just loverly. This picture sucks. I promise in real life it's gorgeous and so, so, so soft.

But wait...

What's that?

EGADS! There are two socks, one inside the other! I'm trying out the double knitting method of knitting two socks at once. There was an article on it in the newest knitty, so I decided I'm insane enough to try some extreme knitting. What. A. Pain. In. The. Farking. Ass. I've only frogged this about 5 times and unknitted I don't know how many stitches. But I'm doing it! And it is kind of fun and definitely not boring.

Dang! I am totally envious of your RPM sock... no, SOCKS!!! Wow, I'm impressed at how you jumped right in there and are doing it. Can't wait to see how they turn out!

Your RPMs look great. I am in awe of your simultaneous knitting skills. I am still working my way up to one sock - let alone two at a time.

The progress bars look great by the way.
