Help me choose: Cosmo, Piazzi or Serendipity?

I'm up to the heel, well, almost, up to the heel with my socks currently OTN. That means time to start planning my next pair. Since I'm usually a good girl and don't have a big stash I only have 3 colorways to choose from.

First up is "Serendipity" by Fearless Fibers. 100% superwash merino and an AMAZING 550 yds. Holy smokes. I could make knee highs with that much yardage!

And then there is "Cosmopolitan" by Yarntini. It is only 260 yds. Can I make a pair of socks with only 260 yds??

Then there's my most recent purchase from Sharing/Karen's Heavenly Creations.
Description says "This is a hand dyed hank of blue faced leicester ultra superwash. It is a 3ply finger weight fiber with 400 yards." And here's a link to her Rav profile.

So leave a comment here on the blog or FB or via email and help me choose! I've never knit with any of these brands before either.

I like the third one... it looks like Lifesavers. :) I like the pineapple ones.

When it comes to menu plans for picky eaters, I think one of the easiest things to do is just right down what you do like to eat. Come up with as many dinners as you can think of - sandwiches, soups, breakfast for dinner, casseroles, meat + side + veggie, etc. Once you have those all listed out, you have a couple of different options. You can either just pick some at random each week and base your grocery list on that, or you can look at what is on sale and plan your menu around that. I like to eat a lot of different stuff, and I like to experiment and try out new recipes too, but having a menu plan helps me know what I need to buy, which saves us a lot of money. If I go to the store to buy just stuff for one dinner, I can easily spend $30 just focusing on that one meal... but if I am buying for the whole week, my outlay is a lot less (between $50-120 weekly, depending on whether I need to stock up on meat, or if I need to buy pet food).

I'm going to check out Fearless Fibers. That is super yardage for the money.
