Gentleman's Plain Winter Sock from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks.
The one on the left has about 6 rows of stocking stitch knitted and the one on the right is where the pattern suggests the leg should end. I'm thinking about making them longer, and I'll make a decision when the second one gets to the same length.
I think the pattern is just right for this wool. The rib adds a little interest and the stocking stitch really shows off the colours.

The colour is really gorgeous. Are you keeping these for yourself?By Marg B, on 21 April, 2006
Well if you can't hold out and you HAVE to buy something on your free day, I can highly recommend this yarn.By OzKnitter, on 22 April, 2006
I'm loving the colours too. I'll bring them to the next meet so you can see them and feel how soft they are.
Oh, yeah, I'm DEFINITELY keeping them for myself :D

Amanda, my first pattern was out of a Patons book, but Socknitters.com has some great resources, and I can highly recommend checking out http://www.socknitters.com/FAQ/FAQ_how.htm
