Sock yarns in waiting ...

Once I get heels turned and am on the fast track towards toes, gotta start thinking about which stashed sock yarn gets to hit the needles next. For my next pair, I want 2x2 ribbing instead of the 1x1 I've been using so far (according to the experts, 2x2 is the very best for socks that stay up). Plus I want to browse through my stitch guides for column-style patterns ... with my last socks I realized that I really liked just patterning just a "clock" into each side of the sock rather than doing an all-over design ... lets me have the speed of plain knitting yet still have something special decorating the sock (it's not that I dislike fancier stitching or colourwork, but I suspect I'll have more patience for it when I have a larger sock supply)

But that still leaves deciding who's next. In the back, four colourways of Colinette Jitterbug and one of Zitron Maxima, yarns which I haven't worked with yet. In the middle, new skeins of Regia and Crazy Zauberball. And in the very front, half-skeins of Crazy Zauberball left over from previous socks (enough to make a second pair in each colourway)

Decisions, decisions ...!
