I'm currently working on a scarf/wrap for me in a very simple ribbing - knit 2, purl 2. It's nice and soft, and stretchy. And this week, I've been playing with magic loop knitting and I'm about to cast on to make myself a pair of fingerless mittens out of Lornas Laces' sock. Same color as the worsted: Robot Overlord.
I'm being adventurous with the mittens - just bought pattern. I hate patterns - I always forget which row I'm on. Anyway, I think my yarn will look great knitted up in this pattern:
This is called Prickly and can be found on Ravelry or here: http://scknits.com/patterns
On a side note, I wish my fingers were as pretty as the models.
