Socks….the perfect vacation knitting:

Boring: The darker striped pair is Lion Magic Stripes (who knew you could buy sock yarn at the grocery store?); the lighter is Fortissima Cotton Colori. It’s 75% cotton, 25% nylon…I’m not sure I trust the nylon content to keep them in in check. They still seem veeeery stretchy. Both 40 stitches, 2×2 ribbing, knit on US2 needles.
