Why am I sharing this? Well, a few years back I got my hands on a gorgeous limited edition skein of Starry, Starry Night from the Three Irish Girls:

It was a gorgeous hank of yarn and I knew it was destined for something special. It sat in my stash for years, waiting for the right project which never seemed to come along.
And then...this happened:

And it all just clicked. My Starry, Starry Night needed to become Exploding TARDIS Socks. I dug through my stash and found a gorgeous (and perfectly matching!) skein of Cian, a bright yellow semi-solid from Three Irish Girls and set to work while on a road trip to New Jersey. By the time I got home, I had these:
|My AWESOME Exploding TARDIS Socks.|
What great bits of nerdery have y'all engaged in?
