I make lavender bags from old 'special' socks (ones that were presents etc) http://lastbiscuit.blogspot.com/2011/07/how-to-make-sock-lavender-bags.html

And cut them into loops and sort of weave them together with my fingers - I found a tutorial here http://momfilter.com/kid-diy/make-bracelet  then wrap the woven strip into a coil and make into mats

I also use socks for stuffing things

I've thought about making patchwork PJ pants with mine, but haven't tried yet.

I shred my old socks and cloth remnants and use them for pillow stuffing.

Other option, stitch up the hole, fill with rice, Knot the other end closed (suggest a simple overhand knot), microwave for 30 seconds or so and you have an instant hot pad (good for those cold mornings, stick it in your coat). Also can use the same rice sock idea for anything you need a descant for, just don't have to heat it for it to absorb moisture.

Now that is very clever. I had the same dilema.

Upcycling old socks into sock animals can definitely be done, sometimes requires a bit more creativity though.

I use socks to cover my stash of yarn (keeps them cleaner and dust free).

I also cut the ankle elasticy part to wear around my wrists while I am cleaning to keep the water from running down my arm (I cant stand that).

I cut the up and use for stuffing small projects.

And I cut them half lengthwise and knot both ends to play tug of war with our dogs.

I never thought to do anything cute with them - I like the little stuffed animals!

I recently made a pair of finger-less gloves for my daughter with a pair of cotton socks that had holes in the heels. I just cut off the 'below the heel' portion and discarded it then used the top ribbed part that goes around the ankle and sewed a small straight line to separate the thumb hole from the fingers so they wouldn't slip down the hand. Sorry I don't have a picture to show. She has terribly dry hands in the winter and these really helped keep the lotion on her hands and helped them heal. She has really enjoyed them and I'll be making more soon.

If you have any knee socks (or longer) you could make headbands from the leg portion.  (I'm thinking this out as I type so. . .)

Cut the foot part off and then cut the leg part into strips.  If one strip is long enough (for your head) just clean up the edges and DONE.  If it's not, sew two strips together then make finish off.

(I think it's already been mentioned)  I like recycled rag rugs.  You should be able to trim up the socks so you could weave them into a rag rug (a la the recycled t-shirt rag rugs).

I made a loch ness monster. That's right.

Her name is NESSIE. Not just nessie. NESSIE.
My grandparents use socks to line cupholders in their car. but that's not nearly as fun.
