spontaneous knitting

I ran out of yarn while knitting something for Babykins so I thought I'd take a break from knitting while I'm waiting for the yarn to come in ...
Then on a recent visit to Michaels...I spotted some Patons Stretch Socks Fingering, marked down from $6.99 to $2.99 now I've been wanting to try it for sometime, but the reviews weren't great, and I wasn't about to waste $6.99 a ball to try it, so I thought now's my chance to try it...
I'm knitting up a pair of knee high stretch socks #170 by Patons and so far I'm
liking it, but not enough to pay full price for it!
I read that this yarn has a plastic feel to it ? but I don't find that, at all. I also read that it was splitty had knots and thin spots? again not in the yarn I have! I'm planing to go back to Michael and get more while it's still on sale, I know as soon as the girls see them I'll  have to make them both a pair!

I love this pink colorway! Enjoy (at 2.99$ it must be even more enjoyable)!

I love spontaneous knitting. Sometimes, it more fun than knitting that well planned.
