Pro: Repetitive, easy to knit while talking/watching TV/in a meeting...
Con: Repetitive, BORING, especially when you realize that it needs to get done by a deadline, and you're less than halfway through.
Pro: Cuddly, you can wear it while you're knitting!
Con: Will it ever be long enough?
Pro: Cute! I love the pattern!
Con: I get tired of the same ol' pattern...
It's this interesting? It is knit on the diagonal, yet when you lay it out (for blocking) it makes a nice honeycomb/waffle square pattern. ahem....and easy to spot a mistake in the middle, while blocking...

(I bought this thinking it was going to be socks, then I realized with no nylon, it wouldn't be MY socks! It comes in two parts: One is what you see above, and the other is 30g of a dark green, almost solid, meant to be toes and heels. I, unquestionably, thought it would be something strong like nylon. Not.)
