Pink socks, anyone?

I decided I need some pink socks -- sort of a Valentine's Day inspiration. So I went stash diving, and this is what I found:

Clockwise from top left: KnitPicks Gloss, Burgundy; KnitPicks Sock Garden, Star Gazer Lily (discontinued); Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, Get Knitted (this was a special colorway dyed for this seller, and I don't find it on their site right now); handpainted sock yarn from ebay seller kbrece; Fleece Artist (from the Loopy Ewe); Lang JaWoll color 82.0162 (from theKnitter.com); Socks that Rock lightweight, Mustang Sally; Gypsy Girl Creations, Painted Desert.

Now I just have to pick a yarn and a pattern! One possibility is the Gansey sock pattern from the EZasPi Yahoo group, which is hosting a Gansey workshop by Liz Lovick. One of the more solid yarns would probably be my best choice. I have just completed my first project from the Gansey workshop, a swatch pin cushion in Peruvian Highland Silk.
