While totally avoiding working on the Aviation Socks, these were my mindless socks for knit nights and car rides. I had about 80 grams of blue Trekking XXL left over from knitting socks for Michael, back in.. um.. 2008. Combined with some other leftovers, they're now socks for me! We'll be able to tell them apart because his don't have the scrappy bits.

I used every last yard of three different XXL leftovers, and had to dip into some Heritage Paints leftovers to finish off the last few rows of the toes. That yarn matches the one I used for the cuffs pretty well, so I'm not mad about it. The purplish heels don't exactly coordinate, but I don't mind.

The pattern is my own Sibling Socks, written in two sizes and available for free.

A pair of softly striped, ribbed socks, mostly in blue. The cuffs and toe-tips are greeny--brown and the heels have a tint of purple.
