Using up old sock yarn

So, that post about the kitchen redo?  Yeah, that was a stressful day.  While I waited, I weeded through my sock yarn collection and pulled out all stuff that didn't go with anything and I'm making some crazy socks with it for Larry. 
The pattern is Mr Pitt's Socks (aka Dad Socks). They've been fun - I'll try these with a single color next. Which I will get sick of in about 3 inches because single colors are dull.  
Also, I'm making a toddler sweater for Melissa's  daughter to go with the toy armadillo. Zinnia comfy sport - it's really awesome. I'm making Rolfe without stripes but having to play with gauge. In fact I have to rip out the back and redo it tonight. I'll take pictures when I have it redone a bit. :p
I also want to start work on <a href="">this</a>with some new Hawthorne in <a href="">Rose City</a>but I'm trying to carrot myself into finishing other things with this. 
And finally - I've been re listening to knitpicks podcasts. I'm not very sophisticated in some of my methods - what I've been doing for decades works so I'm a little lazy - but episode 92 about weaving in ends is really excellent.
