On my current trip, one in all my initiatives was a sock (sure, I solely knit one, and have nonetheless solely knit one). Socks are an awesome journey mission as a result of they don’t take quite a lot of yarn however they will take a good period of time, so that you get quite a lot of worth for the quantity of area they take up in your bag.
The Summer time Picnic Socks from This Handmade Life use two colours so it’s a must to carry round somewhat extra yarn, however they’re additionally brief socks so you may in all probability knit the entire pair on trip. That’s one technique to beat second sock syndrome!
The socks are labored in fingering weight yarn from the highest down and the gingham sample is charted and labored in stranded colorwork.
You may get the sample on Ravelry.
