Comments: I started 2008 planning to participate in the Socks from Stash knitalong. I quickly produced a pair in January thanks to a trip to California for a week of meetings. For February, I let the random sock yarn selector in my stash database* tell me which sock yarn to use next. It chose a yarn I had been avoiding because I was afraid of muddying the lovely colors with a poor pattern selection. I searched Ravelry to find a sock pattern that would complement this colorway and selected on Gruperina's pattern. Even though I made exactly the same socks as a few other knitters, I'm thrilled with the results.
What? Your stash database does not choose yarn for your next project? You do not have a stash database? Both the database and random yarn selector were interesting programming challenges.
