2 free sock patterns!

I have pdfs available for two sock patterns.  These were designed some time ago, but you know how life goes.  In any case, if anyone is interested, email me or leave a comment and I can forward you the pdfs (one or both).
The two patterns are for:
1.  Which way is which socks
These fancy socks use a charted ribbing design to create a lovely diagonal diamond pattern.  It's very simple; there are just K and P stitches, and each row is knit four times before you change patterns.  This stitch pattern gives you a lovely, calf-conforming, never-drooping sock which easily fits many sizes from skinny to muscular legs.   Here are a couple of photos; there are more on the pdf:

2.  Fiber optic socks
These socks use simple increases and decreases to mimic a cable stitch.  Fun and easy to memorize, you need no cable needle, the rows go quicker than real cabling, and you can carry the work and knit anywhere.  My apologies, but I have no photo to post here; there are photos on the pdf.  I cannot find my original digital pics; my computer is having conniptions when I try to copy the photos out of the pdfs I made; and the original socks were sent out some time ago as a gift in a secret partner exchange!  Why the name "fiber optic?"  Because there's a techno war underway between Verizon and similar companies providing fiber optic services and the cable companies!
Happy knitting!

Stephanie and Donna, please send my your emails--they are not showing up automatically here, I'm afraid. Martha and Karen (I'm assuming both Karens are one person given the initials) should have received their copies.
Thanks for the interest!

Merna, I need you to send me your email address (privately is fine--send it to elise dot cohen at verizon dot net); your blogger profile is private and won't allow me access.
Everyone else whose email I have should have received their patterns now! Have fun knitting these or any other socks.

Stop that, Jeffrey! For those of you who are worrying or wondering, that's my DH, SuperHubby, chiming in. He doesn't know from sock patterns, but he's an expert at plugging his company.

I can always use yet another set of sock patterns. The only problem is if I make them for myself I can't guarantee I will be the one who will wear them.

I think I have sent the patterns to everyone for whom I have an email address. If you are reading this and you haven't gotten a copy, let me know--the huge interest bowled me over and I may have slipped up and missed you accidentally.
I really hope anyone who does knit these up will let me see the results!
