I dithered around trying to decide what to cast on last night, before deciding to stick with this one. I'm very excited about the sock it's going to become!
I'm also wondering why I spent the last month or so continuing to mess around with the figure-8 cast on that always results in the cast-n stitches bagging out (at least for me it does) when I had found and noted, but not tried, this genius tutorial, which is amazingly wonderful! (Don't mention it to Sweetie, or he'll get started on the "Of course it's wonderful, it's Turkish!" thing again.)
The Santa Fe sock is doing alright too - it has significant spiraling stripes in this incarnation, but there's no way I'm ripping again. It's currently stalled because I want to weigh the yarn before continuing - did I mention that skein, which was supposed to be 100g, was only 85?
