Here are some socks that I posted on other boards (craftalongs and such), but never here.

First up: Spring Forward socks for my sister. More info here.

Next: Gray Cabled socks for me! Strongly inspired by this pattern.

The next two are really similar. I had a big bag of leftover bits of sock yarn so I made these two pairs of scrappy socks. They're basic Elizabeth Zimmerman socks with a bit of a twist. They were a lot of fun to make though weaving in all the ends was a bit of a pain.

I have more info and photos on my blog. Let me know if you want links for any of them.

Man, I wish I could knit socks (actually, I wish I could knit, period)

That last pair is my very most favourite.

Stash busters are the best! They're all lovely and indeed, I pinned 2 pair to my "I wish I could knit" board.
