Knittin' on a Jet Plane

Here's the result of the nearly eight-hour flight from Philadelphia to Bremen. U.S. Airways has the absolute worst airline food I have ever encountered, so there wasn't much else to do. I'd wanted to work on my Braided Rice Socks, but found out midway through that they required the Size 1 needles that were both packed in my luggage and in use for my Entrelac Socks. So I had no option but to cast on a new pair. It's important to keep two knitting projects in your carry-on bag.

This is my hand-dyed yarn from the Fleece Fair, being turned into a pair of socks. The sock pattern is a modified one from Sensational Knitted Socks, although I wonder if I should have modified it more, since it's spiraling. But I'll see what happens. It's a fairly simple ripple pattern, just enough to give some texture to the patterned yarn. I think I like it.
