Sockin' for Thanks

I have 2 TAs and another teacher at school that I want to thank. I usually get them gift cards, but this year I've decided to knit them socks. Here is the rundown:

TA Fracesca (who loves purple even more than I do)
Yarn = Lorna's Lace Worsted in Black Purl
TA Katie and Calculus Teacher Corrie
Yarn = Schoeller+Stahl Limbo Mexico in Schwarz/blau and Yucatan

The only place local that had the Lorna's Lace color was The Yarn Boutique in Lafayette which has moved to a larger nicer spot next to the Cake Box bakery. While there I also discovered that schoeller+stahl (who makes the Fortissima Socka Color sock yarn) makes a sport weight super-wash self-striping yarn too... the Limbo Mexico stuff. So I'm on a little bit of a sock mission in-between other projects.

County Fair Update:
Hand-spun scarf - 10 more inches done, almost there...
Ryder Sweater- done except for sewing armpits, screwed up once on that seam, need to try again...
Fridge Towel - Need button for closure
