Magical Unicorn Footie Socks!

Magical Unicorn footies 
These practically fell off my needles this weekend!  These are from the exact same footie pattern I used for the all Pop Rocks footie socks I showed you Friday.  I used a bit of Pop Rocks (16 grams) for the toes and heels. (That's 16 g total: each sock used 8 g for the two sections.)  I used Cosmic Wonder Dust for the rest of the socks.  I started with 34 g of that, which I divided into two balls so I wouldn't use more than half on the first sock.  I had a little bit of leftovers on the CWD, but I used every bit of the Pop Rocks.  I've added these weights to my Ravelry page for future reference because I'm sure I'll make more of these two color footie socks.  Just FYI, a regular, single color pair of these footie socks uses about 44 g of fingering weight yarn.  I usually make sure I have at least 48 g before I start. 

I had so much fun watching the speckles of CWD appear as I knit.  It makes me want to buy another skein and pair it with other colors just to make more footies!  I was just bouncing around from happiness watching these socks take shape.  Caleb tells me that they are neither magical, nor unicorn socks, but I think he might be jealous that I haven't knit him a pair or he just got tired of having to look at them.  Silly teenager!
