Yarn and Socks and Stuff Not Political

So, Boy-child wants a pair of plain black socks. I may die of boredom. To make matters worse, the yarn I got didn't make a very good fabric with size 1-1/2 needles, so I'm working on zeros. To spice up what seems to be a hopeless situation, I purchased a little Hiya circular needle to see if I like it:
That didn't seem to spruce things upenough, however, so I cast on an orange sock for Girl-child. It was going to be a surprise, but it seems impossible to keep such a secret (sorry Sweet Pea!). At least I'll have some color to work with:
And then P decided he wants another pair. He wanted a variegated purple, but I didn't find anything particularly good. I came home with this:
And this:
He's going with the latter, although I haven't cast that on, and I have promised myself that I won't cast it on until I've finished the Back to School socks (maybe in a week or two)
