Shopping therapy :) (and half a sock)

As I still don't have anything finished to show you (I know, I know, shame on me), I thought I'd show you the pretty fabric I bought yesterday. These will become Christmas party dresses for the girls, at some point..
Yes, I realize that the colors are a bit distorted, the two last ones are black, the first is a kinda strange purplish pink, very pretty in person tho. :) The first and last ones are taffeta, the middle one is velour. I'm planning on using the black ones for a dress for the older girl, altho the husband couldn't understand why I'd make a child a black dress. I think it'll be pretty, as it isn't completely black. I still haven't decided if I'll make a balloon dress or not. I might. Or I might not. The tiny one's dress will get a very simple dress, maybe with a little bit of ruffles or something. And now if I'd actually have time to make these dresses..

And now for the sock. The tiny one lost the green socks I made her, so obviously I have to make her another pair. I'm using the same yarn I used for the 5yo's socks, as I had lots left over. I'm at the heel of the first sock, maybe I'll finish the first sock this weekend.
