Too Many Options! (Adriana)

I had a lovely trip home where some shrug knitting was accomplished (I'll show pictures when I have daylight and time). I'm most of the way through Audrey's second sleeve but once I'm done that I'll need to wait for Heather's visit this weekend (squee!) before I can do any more work on that project. In need of a new project I went stash diving and emerged with 750m of dk weight cotton in a dark blue. At first I was thinking about making Green Gable but then I started discovering all sorts of other beautiful patterns and now I can't decide.
Here are the ones I'm considering:

green gable
Green Gable

honeymoon cami
Honeymoon Cami

soleil
Soleil

silk camisole
The Silk Camisole from Last Minute Knitted Gifts

unmentionable
Mentionable

sizzle
Sizzle

I have not done a gauge swatch yet but the ballband says it's 24st/4" on 3.5mm needles. I think that a swatch might help narrow down my options.

Any thoughts? I'm a tank-top-y kind of girl so I suspect that I will end up making several of these but I need some help knowing where to begin.

Swatch first, then wash and dry as directed... I made several attempts to make Soleil, but was foiled due to cotton's capricious nature.

I am partial to Green Gable and Sizzle. Whew!!

Oooh, awesome choices! I have made the Honeymoom Cami and it's a nice knit. Those others are great too, though. I can't wait to see what you picked for your first one!
