toe-up socks, periwinkle
OK, so I take back, what I said about sock knitting totally sucking. What changed my mind?

  1. cotton & elastic yarn: soft! and cheap!
  2. using one big circular needle instead of five motherfucking pain-in-the-ass double-points is much easier on the hands
  3. going toe-up makes easier fitting and a nicer looking heel

As for the boredom issue? A sock is a great to stick in your bag for when you actually need some light distraction — like commutes, family visits, and staff meetings.
