I'm leaning toward the Sandalwood Socks because I already have the Sandalwood pattern somewhere in my stash of back issues of Interweave Knits, whereas, I'd have to buy the pattern for the Port Ludlow Socks, and the Socks of Kindness look similar to the Diagonal Lace Socks that I just finished. On the other hand, the Socks of Kindness look the easiest, and it's always nice to have something easy on the needles, especially since I'm about to begin a massive lace project. In conclusion, I don't know which pair to pick!
p.s. Can we all take a moment to appreciate those darling sock blockers in the photo of the Socks of Kindness? WANT!
