I've finally come up with a use for my sock scraps: the beekeper's quilt. It'll be a long time coming since I don't knit super fast (and also don't have a whole lot of free time to devote to knitting), but I think it'll look pretty excellent at the end. I'm planning on using self-striping sock yarn for one, and my semisolids/variegateds for a second.
I have a good source for the self-striping yarns, LittleKnits, a retailer that sells discontinued lines and colors at a steep discount. I may also hit up some Ravelry destashes. Needless to say, I'm looking forward to having a new blanket and expanding my collection of knitted socks. They're wonderful for when it's cold out.
