new sock projects

I've got plans for my next two pair of socks: the Rib and Cable socks from Interweave Knits' Fall 2005 issue, in the purple yarn on the right. I got this yarn at Rhinebeck last fall, from Sliver Moom Farm. The color is Smoky Plum, it's 100% superwash wool and approximately 172 yards. It's a big thinner than Koigu, so I'm not sure if I should use size 0 or 1 needles. And I'm going to use the Knit Picks Gloss for Grumperina's socks in the new Interweave Knits. I think we can say that I've had my fill of stockinette socks (for the time being).

However: I would really like to finish a pair of socks that have been hanging around from last year before starting the new ones. Will I have enough willpower? Doubtful! ;)
