Too much choice

I have finished another pair of Christmas socks. I'm managing a pair a week at the moment and hope that will be enough for Christmas demand this year. By my reckoning I can knit another eleven pairs, which is surely enough. These are the Opal Rainforest Peacock socks you saw at the beginning of the week. I like them; they were no trouble.

The difficulty now is deciding with which yarn to knit next. I am having difficulty choosing from the lovely sock yarns I have. I don't consider this large amount of sock yarn to be a problem ever, (you can never have enough sock yarn) but I do consider it to give me too much choice. I'm indecisive at the best of times and I've been wondering all night and already this morning which yarn to cast on.

The options:

1. Good old fashioned faux fair isle
2. My own dyed sock yarn
3. Some of my posh sock yarn
4. Try mixing some of the leftover yarn
5. Dye some new sock yarn and then cast on with that

All categories have their individual appeal, but even then I would struggle because in option one I would have to choose between the many faux fair isles. In option two I have two of my own sock yarns. No option is clear.

I'm probably giving this too much thought, but I'm going to set a deadline of 8.00am to decide.

Your own dyed sock yarn. Is that a new floor I spot there too?

I have cast on with my own sock yarn. I'm happy with my choice.

Thing is, I'm not feeling too well. I think I've caught Wheezy's illness from visiting her blog too often!

That is my new floor, and I love it!
