Rockin Sock Yarn

One of the wonderful gals in my SnB gave me this absolutely delicious yarn for helping her move into her new place.


I love the colors in it, and I can't wait to work with it. The only problem, is that I don't knit socks. I love looking at sock patterns, and I love wearing my hand knit socks, however I have no desire to make them myself.



So now I am asking you to help me decide on some patterns of what to make from my Socks that Rock Yarn. I would love to make something for myself out of this yarn, I can't remember the last time I was knitting for myself, and I can't wait to be excited about something for me. I am however not opposed to knitting it up for someone else, as long as I get to work with it soon! Let me know what you think. I have 360 yards of this new love of mine, so plot away!

It wants to be something for you, period. Here's a link to a ruffled scarf done in another STR colorway... http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ladibug/just-enough-ruffles

I was thinking along the lines of this:

You might have to swatch and add or subtract repeats but you have the knowledge and the skills to do that. Plus the knitting group behind you! g
