It looks crappy in the yarn I'm using (grey and blue twist). I'm going to rip it out and start again using a solid color (probably white). I have any white sock-weight yarn? No.

Can I justify buying white sock weight yarn when I have a whole blooming box in the closet including some excellent silk wool begging (for more than a decade) to be knitted into something pretty for me? Mmmmm...probably not. But I want to knit these socks! I don't know what I want to do with the silk wool yet - it's a beautiful brown-grey tweedy flecky slubby soft wool - probably needs to be a vest (due to the fact that I don't have enough for a sweater), but will a vest look good on me? It wants to have cables, but do I want the bulk of cables added to the bulk of the bodacious tatas?

Decisions, decisions.

I only wish that I could knit so that I could have such problems. (Minus the bodacious tatas since mine are more like small deflated balloons)

Put the cable right down the middle, in between the bodacious ta-tas. Do the little popcorn-looking stuff on either side.

Oh, I have a great solution!

Knit the pretty silk wool into a vest for me. I look great in vests!
