I wish I had a better picture of these socks, but my computer is on the blink. 

Pattern:  Wickerware Socks
http://web.archive.org/web/20020808070009/sockguy.virtualave.net/page17.html

Needles:  Size 1 for cuff, Size 2 for the rest.

Yarn:  Lonesome Stone Alpaca, Mountain Feet

Notes:  The pattern is really simple to remember.  The only modification I would have made is to use size 0 and 1 needles instead.  I love the yarn. It was a little pricey, but worth it. I have enough left over for a pair of baby sock.  I like how they turned out.

Yours are wonderful. How did you decide on the one pattern?
All those different sock patterns at that link are giving me a headache about which to try first.

Jane, I went on Ravelry.  I searched for free patterns for men and that seemed to narrow it down quite a bit.

WOW!!! I just searched for socks and yours was the first pattern I clicked on.  I'm going to try my first pair, made with.....Lonesome Stone Alpaca (!!!!) which I bought at the farm when I visited last week while in Colorado.  Wonderful owners, beautiful animals, amazing fibers.  I'm so tickled by this coincidence - these must be my sock destiny.  Yours look really great - hope mine turn out half as well.
