Sure I have 2 huge projects (Hourglass sweater from LMKG and the Red Cross Army Vest for the OSCBF) on the go, but I don't have anything small and simple that I can take with me anywhere. I'm still working on the sample of the modular scarf for my wonderful LYS but the pattern is too complicated to work on while reading / chatting in the TA room at school. So I'm thinking I might grab the leftover yarns from the wristwarmers I made to order, specifically the 3 pima silks, and start some socks today. Simple St st, toe-up, short heel (possibly with a garter heel like I read about over at Knitting in the Desert) ribbed top socks. Only they'll be stripped, because I don't have enough of any of the colours for 2 full socks.
OK, I guess it's not that big of a dilemma!
