The striped ones are made with Red Heart Strata. The solids are Caron Simply Soft.
I varied the ribbings and heel flaps a little.
The purple one is all garter stitch from the ribbing down. It makes a cute puffy little bootie.

Shawls are due at the a4A collection center in a week, so I'm going to stop making and start sending them now.There's 8 in all. 4 were knit with The Ultimate Sweater Machine. (It's not just for sweaters, obviously.) I crocheted borders on 3 of those, and knit a garter stitch border on the 4th. 3 are all hand crocheted and one is hand knit.
Here's Fuzzy (my other cat, not the one who had the tumor) sitting on one of the crocheted shawls before it was finished. Needless to say, all shawls come with a little cat hair.
The chest next to the chair is fill with, you guessed it, YARN!
