(Fiber) love is in the air

So we all know about my spaz over socks.

"OMG I've never done them!"
"OMG heels are scary!"
"OMG so many stitches!"
"OMG ...I'm not really a use sock user."

Well, recently I discovered a few things:

1. I am a 9D in shoes. That means that because I've been buying less expensive shoes, I've been having to get shoes that are both too big and too narrow. Which, obviously, kind of meant that socks were a bit troublesome.
2. There is this thing called an afterthought heel (and/or peasant heel and/or grandma heel) that makes infinitely more sense to me than the flap/gusset or the short row version. It also works perfectly with my knitting tendencies (ie, usually knitting on the go where fiddly work is difficult).
3. Knit socks are Ridiculously Comfortable.
4. And they really don't take as much time as I seem to have thought they took.
5. Especially when I'm using the magic loop method which for some reason makes all knitting Better.
6. There are SO VERY MANY lovely, beautiful, squishy, gorgeous, fantastic, amazing, well spun, spiffy kinds of sock yarn.
7. And lastly, socks are the PERFECT size for travel knitting since they never get larger than something that can be stashed in a purse.

So when you combine all these things? ...socks are FUN.

There's also a bajillion patterns for them, a bajillion beautiful yarns for them, and having actually put on a knit sock (and one that was knit quickly just to test a few things out) they're totally worth the time and effort. I HATE cold feet, after all.

Anyway, the stuff above is Sanguine Gryphon Bugga! in Orange Assassin Bug and I must say, the stuff is absolutely gorgeous. Not only that, but it's got a nice dense weight to it, an enjoyable heaviness. I'm a fan of hearty yarn, and so far this company seems to do a brilliant job at it; it's one of the few where I feel like it lives up to the hype.

But I have no idea what to do with it yet! Any thoughts?
