Lion Brand Magic Stripes Yarn

I am crocheting a pair of socks with Lion Brand's Magic Stripes yarn (in the color Purple Pattern) and I love the way it looks! I bought enough that I can crochet a pair and knit a pair.....the cool thing is how different they will look!
The pattern I'm using for the crochet pair is here:
It's a pretty simple pattern, I got the toe section done fairly quickly and I'm working on the main part of the foot between the toe and heel. I'll post a pic when I get one done.

Socks and my Marines

I have been on such a sock kick lately! =) I have knit a pair in Plymouth's Colorspun DK (for me) and a pair of baby socks for one of the two grandchildren we have due this winter. I have another pair on my needles now, this one in a scrumptious Cashmerino in a mouth-watering shade of hot cocoa! =)
Jessica graduated from bootcamp yesterday, with a meritorious promotion! Instead of being a Private she is a PFC, pretty awesome! I honestly expected nothing less from her, she does NOTHING 1/2 way! And to stand there during the cermony next to my son who was in his dress blues.............. Is it possible for a Mom to be any more proud?? So, Jessica is home for 10 days ~ which will pass by WAY TOO quickly!!!!
