Work In Progress (WIP): Blueberry Waffle socks

I wanted to see what my dip-dyed yarn looks when knitted up into a sock.  I choose a skein of my Mr. Blue Eyes yarn and found a simple pattern, called Blueberry Waffle socks.  I love the various blues and when knitted up the item looks like denim jean fabric.

The different colors create just the tiniest bit of variation to keep the knitting interesting. Have you ever knitted anything with self-striping yarn?  What about a pattern with just a two row repeat?  Well, I find myself knitting and knowing I have to stop soon but I keep thinking, “Oh, it’s just one more row” or “Cool – the color just changed, I’ll knit until it changes again.”

Do you have a favorite pattern with a simple repeat that you just can’t put down?  Please share!
