Thanks! I was just about to take your advice when I realized that the bottom half of a gallon jug is not a great place to keep my needles... so I gave into temptation and started sewing a needle case.
Once it's finished (later today) I'll start one of the new socks. Now... should it be the dark purple, or the turquoise-yellow-magenta?
Man, I can't decide anything, can I?
