My first pair of socks...ever.

I finished my February socks: whew! They are modeled here by the recipient (my significant other) and considering the length of his feet, this was a marathon of knitting for me. He said "it is a priveledge to wear handknit socks." *smile* I take that to mean he won't notice the errors in the ribbed cuff of the first sock. This is the first pair of socks I have ever knit.

pattern: TechGuy Socks, modified with wrapped short rows
yarn: Regia superwash fingering weight 4-ply 75 wool/25 poly sock yarn
color: 5097 "spot graphit" (dark grey with red and blue flecks)
needles: Prym double pointed aluminum 3.0 mm (approx US2)
techguy socks
Any ideas for my March socks? I think I will try toe-up construction and two socks at a time on circulars with a turkish cast on. Beyond that do you fabulous sock knitters have any ideas for my second pair of socks? Maybe argyle? This time I will be selfish and keep them for myself.

Hard to believe you've never knit socks before! Those are great. Once you start knitting socks it's hard to stop. So many patterns out there I don't know what to recommend.
