I designed these socks because I couldn't find the perfect pattern for me - the one for which I could:
- memorize the pattern
- not need a stitch marker
- be able to stop at any of four different needles when called upon on walk off a subway car or down the stairs of a bus without losing my place, and
- not go crazy from not being able to see obvious signs of progress
and not have the socks bag at the ankle, either. The fact that they're fun like a pair of kids' rain boots is just a bonus!
- both written pattern and charts
- full directions plus a cheatsheet to cut out and carry in your bag
- tips (with photographs) on how to minimize holes while picking up gusset stitches
- step-by-step Kitchener stitch instructions for grafting toes shut

(Please take time to check gauge - if you don't naturally knit with relaxed tension, you may need to go up a needle size or two.)
I'm a writer who knits and sews... just not so much in that order.
