Doctor Who Sock Yarn

Fact:  I love sock yarn.  Problem:  I don’t know how to knit socks.  I bought two skeins of KnitPick’s Felici sockyarn in Time Traveler.  Why?  Because it self- stripes into the colors of the Fourth Doctor’s (Tom Baker) scarf!  I couldn’t resist.  I guess I am going to learn to knit socks.
