It's all about socks at the moment

And I didn't even sign up for Socktober!

Here's my next pair, for my brother for Christmas. He always wears odd socks, so I'm going to make them with the same yarn (Regia) but use a different pattern for each (he will think that is very tricky!). This one is the Gentleman's Half Hose in Ringwood Pattern, again from Nancy Bush Knitting Vintage Socks. Very easy 3 row repeat pattern - 1x1 rib for 1 row, knit the next 2 rows. Hopefully a lot quicker than the Gent's Fancy Socks!!!

What a fun idea! I have a girlfriend that would LOVE socks that are just "friends" instead of "mates." It never occured to me to do different patterns in matching yarn - now I've got to give it a try! Can't wait to see how yours come out!
