I've been promising some of these for months.
DH's Weird Science Socks
Yarn Forward, in a yarn called "Aurora" from Angel Yarns. When I bought it off their website, the yarn shown was in jewel shades; I was disappointed to find it was the above muted/muddy colours, but I left it too long to send it back. Anyway, DH said it would be OK for a pair of socks for him, so I made these. I still have to take a photo of the back pattern, which was not shown in the magazine and was not related to the pattern shown on the front of the legs.
Jacquard self-patterning socks
Needles: 2.5mm DPNs
I enjoyed doing these so much that I promptly knitted a pair of use-em-up socks to finish off the yarn.
Jacquard Use-em-up Socks
They're a little shorter than my usual socks and, unlike other Ues-em-ups don't have the patterned heel - I'd finished the first one and got half way down the second leg when I realised that I didn't have enough patterned yarn do do the heel and the toe so had to rip back the first sock to make a semi matching pair.
I just love the toes.
In the end, I had a metre left of the Regia. The other yarn is Lisa Souza Sock! in Ecru.
One pair for Eldest Sis for her birthday, last April:
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill DK
Colourway: Cabin Fever
Needles: 3.25mm DPNs
Pattern: Zig-Zag Socks by Jocelyn Sertich
And one pair for me.
Yarn: Mirasole Chirapa
Here is a close-up of the pattern, which is based on multiples of six stitches and is easy to remember.
As I mentioned in this month's SitRep, my pair knitted up shorter than the pair for my sister. Also, I don't know how her pair are wearing but I've worn mine twice and the soles are felting:
