While they are interesting, the black sock yarn I have is already mostly transformed from two balls into a Pimpelliese scarf. Besides which, I'm too cheap to buy a sock pattern, no matter how tantalizing. Too may WIPs, too little time. ;)
I hear you loud and clear....it's official, I'm now a "true" knitter. Just yesterday I started filling a new tote with WIP/UFO--a first for me. Don't do black, am looking at bright yellow and midnight blue (I feel I must give the socks a try since I bought the pattern) Pimpelliese scarf looks interesting.
