i've knit a few single socks recently, but this is my first completed pair.
the pattern is a free one called clementine's baltic socks from www.clementineshoes.blogspot.com
(there's a link to it somewhere in her sidebar on the right.
the pattern is written for cuff down, but i did mine toe-up, starting with a figure 8 cast on and i just knit the lace pattern as written so the leaves grow up the leg, instead of down. i also knit a 68 stitch sock, adding the 4 extra stitches to the stockinette panels on the side.
i love the yarn i used. it's socks that rock lightweight in the shaded solid "in the navy" the color is really pretty in person.
i highly recommend the pattern. the lace is one that's easy to memorize after a few repeats and it looks really pretty. yay!
