My Favorite Sock Knitting Patterns in the Indie GAL

I've been wanting to add more hand knit socks to my wardrobe, but I'm also super in love with DK weight yarn, so I decided to scan the Indie Gift Along for some options! There were 66 results for DK weight socks from participating designers; here are my 9 favorites... and of course, I couldn't help but take a peek at the fingering weight and sport weight socks (especially ankle height), so I've shared some of my favorites from there as well!
