From Knitting with Balls:

Whether hiking up a steep hill or just pounding the pavement up those steps from the subway, every guy knows the difference that a pair of socks makes in determining how far he goes - and what shape his feet are in when he gets there. These Hiking Boot Socks use the bulkiness of Madil’s Iceland yarn to produce just the right amount of support. What’s more, this quick knit offers a great first attempt at knitting socks!
