Socks, Hats, and Gloves... I love fingering weight!

I have actually completed the socks to the ribbed cuff, just need to k1p1 round and round until I think they're long enough, or until I run out of yarn. I am guessing the former will come first. I am kind of looking forward to having left over sock yarn enough from several projects to make something kind of crazy. Since I tend to use the self-striping yarns, I wonder what kind of fair isle look I can achieve with them? And just how crazy will I be willing to go?

Sock/Fingering Weight yarns I have used so far:


Mini Mochi in Violets Rainbow

I am making "Sock It To Me" gloves with this, my first knitted glove pattern.








Lion Brand Sock-Ease in Cotton Candy:


 

I made the "Happy Valentines Day" Hat in tapestry crochet for my daughter with this.







and Yarn Bee's WalkAway in Toe Hold, which I used for my socks, "Two at Once, Toe Up, Magic Loop Socks" from KnitPicks.

I LOVE SOCK YARN!
The Mini Mochi is my first "luxury" yarn purchase, not from a box store, but from a LYS, that I purchased with my own money, for me. Yay!
