I am currently trying to decide between two different skeins of yarn, one a kettle dyed, Jurassic Park on Strong Heart base, and the other a semi-solid, Moss on Warm Heart base, both Fishknits yarns. Jurassic Park would probably be better as a plain vanilla sock to let the color flow without a complicated pattern. Moss would do fine for something with a pattern, maybe lace.
Since I am finishing the ribbing on a pair of socks for my husband I will be done soon and ready to start a pair for myself. I might even cast on for two pair instead of trying to decide between the two.
