Sock Knitting Addicition

Hello friends!
Guess what? I'm addicted to knitting socks! Yes, there, I've said it....
Lots of my knitty friends had always talked about their sock knitting addiction, but I never really "got it"... But now that I have almost finished knitting my first pair of "real" socks I can completely understand it. 
I wasn't even halfway through the first sock before I started planning all the other socks I was going to knit :-) 
I have knitted socks before, but they've all been bed socks or tube socks... nothing with a proper heel or that could actually be worn with regular, everyday shoes :-)
This is my very first proper sock! And I'm almost finished it's partner :-)
I used a pattern that I found in Australian Creative Knitting magazine Issue #38 Spring. I don't know if this was a particularly well written and easy pattern or if sock knitting is no where near as scary as I thought :-) (The pattern isn't currently on Ravelry, just in case you were wondering :-)
The yarn I have used is Regia Design Line 4 ply in colour way "Exotic Pool". It's a very nice yarn to use and the colours are really fabulous :-)
The next pair of socks I plan to make are these ones from Purl Bee, and I'm using this scrumptious wool/cotton blend yarn from Rowan in colour way "Aqua".
Have you knit socks before? Do you have a favourite sock pattern or a favourite sock yarn? Share in the comments! :-)
