the sock is from this pattern book (not the picture on the front cover).
the pattern i'm using is called "textured socks". the front of the leg has a nice zigzag pattern, and the rest of the sock is knitted in seed stitch. well, i've noticed that my seed stitch portion has a very different row gauge than the other part. i'm a bit concerned about that.
i don't have a better picture right now of my sock, other than this crazy photo.
