I designed these socks to be the ultimate travel knitting project - easy without being boring, all the while resulting in a pair of socks you'll love to wear. The colorwork lice and stripe pattern at the top of the cuff can be easily memorized (and you can just use your first sock as a reference when knitting sock #2); the striped toe allows you to easily work your toe shaping - all you have to do is remember which color is worked for the decrease round! As an added bonus, they are a great way to use leftover sock yarn, as you only need a small amount for the contrast color.

I learned to knit the worst way there is - from a book! And not even a good book, a really crappy one (Knitting for Dummies)! For some reason I stuck with it, and now I'm thoroughly addicted. I’ve been a licensed massage therapist, a yarn dyer for a small hand-dyed yarn company, and spent many years as an office slave. As previously noted, I compulsively knit, design and spin in my free time. If I’m not doing any of the above, you can find me playing music in the band Shalloboi, in which I sing and play drums.
