particularly sock patterns.....I have a hard time committing to the next project.
Right now I am on the search for a sock pattern, especially toe up.
Any leads?

LOL, I have the opposite problem; too many projects on the go at once because I want to do EVERYTHING!

I guess the smart knitty thing to do would be to make a swatch of the design feature you like about a sock and see if you like it as much in person.

The only fancy socks I've made were modified from a pouch pattern using a lacy leaves motif. I use Silver's two-at-a-time on one needle as a guide, but do a no-wraps mitred heel instead.

Oh, my rav queue is massive!
I have any number of things at one time that I want to knit, but it is COMMITTING to one I find so hard.
Not sure why socks are so much harder for me than anything else.
Lovely socks!

Do you want any book suggestions?  I like http://www.amazon.com/Toe-Up-2-at-Time-Melissa-Morgan-Oakes/dp/1603425330 and I can get it from my local library.  Ravelry is a lovely place to find too many toe-up sock patterns (as you know)

What I usually do is to find the yarn I want to use, then do my Rav search.  If I can picture that yarn looking lovely in that pattern, I then leave that open in a tab.  After I get a few I narrow it down and then start on the winner.

When in doubt, use more glue!

Look Ma, I'm on Ravelry!

I'm the same way... Lots of things I want to knit, but it takes me a long time to decide exactly what to cast on. Some people mistake it for being in a slump, not wanting to knit, and I'm like no, I totally want to knit, just can't decide what! LoL

For example, I know I want to knit a baby blanket for my niece who is expecting her first baby this year. Took me a looooong time to settle on a pattern... Now that I did, the yarni want to use wont be I stock until the end of March :/ so right now I know what I want to knit, but I can't. Now I have to figure out what to work on in the meantime, lol!
