Much to my surprise, I do have something finished this week. These are Geek Socks (pattern in the latest Knitty):
The yarn isn't available anymore, so don't ask. The colorway's called Caprica.
Geek Socks is a great pattern for that skein of self-striping yarn that you just had to buy. It's much more fun than a plain vanilla sock. You don't keep track of where the round starts. The pattern changes when the color does. It has an afterthought heel, so basically you knit a tube, finish it off with a toe, and go back and put in the heel. The only thing that you have to be careful of is the length of the color repeats. You need at least 3 rounds of each color for it to work.
