socks. I made a pair for the Farmer's Mom for Christmas and I did not want to give them up. There are only 8 cable stitches where things change and the pattern is memorize-able. I knit most of one on the plane home from Panama City Beach. I find airports stressful, but I love knitting on planes. These socks magically transform when you put them on. They go from lumpy, scrawny knit things to really pretty cabled socks. Go find yourself a skein of worsted weight yarn and get knitting!
