Which socks should I knit next?
I'm looking for something that's a fairly quick knit after slugging through my argyle socks. I'm knitting for a sock-a-month knit-a-long -- these will be for September -- but I also need time to complete another project for my wife.

I want to use some of my new yarn, so all of these except the fair isle ankle socks will be knit in Knit Picks' Memories in the Yukon or S'mores colorways. The fair isle socks would be done in Lorna's Laces Pine and Neon. They would be for my wife and therefore smaller around and shorter (she doesn't like tall socks) so that's why they get consideration.

Jaywalker socks
Campfire socks
Fair isle ankle socks (green socks on the cover)
Twisted tweed socks
Bloody Mary socks
Charade socks

I don't know which ones you should do but I want to try the Jaywalkers! Actually I couldn't see all the pictures so I didn't vote but I liked the jaywalkers for something a little different.

I have not knit any of those... but if you want a fast knit sock I think the campfire looks like it would be it...

I thought posting this a few days before I finish my socks would give me time to decide, but all it's making me do is want to swatch for these socks! Must...finish...argyle...socks...first...

I love the fair isle socks, so I voted for those. Good luck deciding, it must be tough!

The campfire socks got my vote. I may even have to try those myself and they have a toe up version of the pattern which I also want to try.
