I finished these socks a bit ago, using this FREE pattern: http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTpomatomus.html
With a US#2 needles and Pagewood Farm Glacier Bay Hand Dyed Sock Yarn, they turned out well.
The stitch pattern incorporates twisted stitches which are a bit hard to get used to at first but are well worth it. I've seen some nice fingerless gloves with this pattern as well. The repeat is 22 rows but after a few rounds you'll be able to guess what happens next.
