What to knit, what to knit?

I finished the Monkey socks. They’ve had their grafts tightened and their ends woven in. They’ve been washed and blocked and will be delivered to their owner on Monday.

I have no socks on the needles.

I have an embarrassment of sock yarn. Perhaps you recall that it takes over nearly half of my queen-sized bed. I certainly recall it.


So, what’s a geek to do when in possession of empty sock needles?

Well, here’s what I did.

I exported my Ravelry stash as an Excel File. Then I created a separate list containing nothing but sock yarn. Then I plugged the list into this random list generator and it thought for approximately half of one second and presented me with a randomized version of the same list.

So, my next pair of socks will be knit with this yarn from Pagewood Farms.


Now then, I need to come up with a nice geeky way to pick a pattern…

    I think you should take all the sock patterns that you have queued on Ravelry , plug them into the random generator, et voila!!!
