What's your favorite intermediate/difficult sock pattern?  I really want to try something complicated.  These are the patterns that have caught my eye so far:

Bayerische - http://www.eunnyjang.com/knit/2006/09/bayerische_sock_part_ii.html
Cablenet - http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall06/PATTcablenet.html
Pomatomus - http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter05/PATTpomatomus.html

They're not free but Cookie A's designs are both beautiful and intricate.

Do you just like cables & lace right now? What about colorwork? Smiley

I like:
Knitty's Q
Esther sock (pic). The pattern is a free PDF file on a German sock group.  Use Altavista's Babelfish translator to sign up if you don't speak German. Smiley
DROPS long cabled socks from issue 103 (#10). There's a knitalong for this.

Garnstudio/DROPS Design also has lots of free patterns you can browse besides this one.

I am in the middle of making pomatomus and I am really enjoying it. I love the design!

I have a complex one for you: Scheherazade's Slippers.  I'm doing them now and they're definitely a nice challenge.  They were part of a Mystery Sock KAL, so the instructions are in four parts, just FYI  Smiley
