Finnished Socks & New Purchases

I finnished my sons socks - his first pair. He was so pleased that he had to wear them to bed that night.
I used a short leg as that how we were all of ours, short row heal (really love it). Than I used BMFA "Alina's Toe". As noted below - this was my first foray into socks on circs and 2 at a time. Both went well, some learning ensued.

These were a pair that I had cast on prior to my sons. Actually I had cast them on once in a pattern designed for the stripes to be vertical - after finnishing the sock (didn't fit) I ripped it out and went back to horizontal stripe. They are for me - messed up needle sizing betwn sock 1 and 2 (my push to do them 2 at a time) so although they stripped compatably the fit isn't exactly the same.

Out shopping yesterday I was in a new (for me) YS, this of course required a stop and purchases. I have some yarn left from my sons socks so I picked up Red to compliment and make another pair. The blue/brown/purple is for my DH - and the cotton candy colors for me or my daughter.... we'll see.
I'm beginning to acquire this stash thing I swore I wasn't going to do. Oh well, just have to find places to put it.

Thanks so much for your nice comment on my blog! I love the sck Very much. I'm considering wearing them again tomorrow! Well, maybe not. For some reason your photos aren't showing up for me. My boys are bugging me for socks now, so I think I'll go wind some yarn!
