I finished another pair of socks at work last week.

Needles: Crystal Palace 2.25mm
64 stitches short row toe and heel
3 inches 2X2 ribbing
Russian bind off

I made this coaster with the leftovers:

Pinwheel Coaster

Yarn: Regia Cotton Surf 5415
Needles: Knit Picks 2.5mm
Pattern: Pinwheel here
worked pattern until 12 stitches between YO
purl 1 row, knit 1 row, purl 1 row
Russian bind off
Finished size: 5inches across

Gray Twist sock

Yarn: Knit Picks Carbon Twist Essential
Needles: bamboo 2.25mm

I am starting new socks for my DH. They remind me of these. But the new ones are better because they are machine washable. I ripped the first pair. Hubby liked the color and feel and all, but needs machine washable socks. I guess most guys do!
