Yeah, you need to make another one! What pattern did you use then, what will you use this time?

One problem I have with using fingering yarn for other projects is finding solid colors that I can actually afford to buy enough of. Most sock yarns are self striping and I tend to avoid horizontal stripes. I've seen space dyed yarn that would be cool for socks but I will only do superwash socks, hand washing is out! and it's all hand wash or the price is too high. I keep looking and will come across some one day. I want the space dyed yarn for Skew Socks.
