First Carpool Socks

My first traveling project is complete. The colors are a little crazy, but it was easy to get the stripes to match for both socks. Matching isn't something i usually care about, but when I use this kind of self patterning sock yarn - it's nice if the socks are twins.

These socks went a little quicker than I anticipated. My daily commute is about a 70mile round trip so I was able to finish these socks quickly during my trip last week. Luckily I had also stashed an additional ball of sock yarn in my project bag. So I've already started my second pair of carpool socks. Airports and layovers create a lot of knitting time.

Yarn: ONline Supersocke 100; color #765
