My second, third and fourth pairs of hand-knit socks. (Here's my first.) Each is an improvement on the previous (and also a little bit taller). I just finished the yellow pair and they are totally my favorites - the little cables make for such a perfectly snug fit.

3rd) Grey-blue yarn: Regia - Stable
Pattern: Garter-rib socks from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch
4th) Yellow yarn: Cascade Heritage - Mustard
