Shame shame shame!

Okay, as the creator of the Thrifty Knits webring, you'd think I'd be able to behave myself. Thanks to Melanie, I decided to try a pair of socks. You see, my 3 year old is always wearing mismatched socks on purpose. So, I thought if I knit her a pair of not-quite-matching socks, she'd wear them more than the other hodpodge selection she's been choosing. I can hope, right? I was shopping around to find some good cotton yarn, because my daughter has horrible eczema and we have to be very careful with anything that will touch her skin. Okay, with that knowledge, imagine having a horribly stressful week (dh was gone for 2 days, parents were out of town, daughter was out of school, and other issues) and then picture running off to the LYS. Oh, not good! I came out with Skacel dpns, Cascade Fixations yarn, an unknown yarn (my 8 month old got to the skein and wrapper), and a pattern from Knitting Pure & Simple. Eeeek! I LOVE LOVE LOVE both the dpns and the mercerized cotton. I swear I could hold the project by the ball and spin it around without worry of a needle launching from the project and putting an eye out!

So.....the weather was too beautiful this weekend (even though it's all cold and wet again) for me to get much done. So, here's what I've accomplished so far:

I had to go and get back the one completed sock back from Adelaide. She loves it and had run off with it. I found it in her purse. LOL

My free magazine from Creative Knitting arrived today. I've only glanced through it, but here are the projects from this issue. I've checked the ones I'm eyeballing:

I'm sure there's more to say, but I'm so worn out. Dh is putting Adelaide to bed and Emma is already there. Hopefully I'll get a few rows in!

The purples in your sock are so vivid and beautiful. They remind me of lilacs in spring...*sigh*

Love the socks! What yarn did you use? It doesn't look like Fixation. Did you use the Knitting Pure and Simple sock pattern?
