I want to start a new shawl and even have a stitch pattern in mind, but I haven't had the inclination to chart everything out. Hence, I've started a simple pair of socks from leftover Keesmere yarn. The green came from here, and there's pounds and pounds of the gray on hand.
I have to knit stripes if I'm working in plain stockinette. That's the only thing that keeps me from being bored out of my mind. And it makes matching the two in length much easier!
