It seems like one thing that post-apocalyptic fiction agrees on is that we’ll be walking a lot after the end of civilization. With all that walking going on, you’ll need a good set of boots as well as sturdy socks. For some reason, the books tend not to focus on socks… These worsted weight cuties are designed for heavy use. They have a slipped stitch pattern to cushion the feet and a short leg tailored for
wear with ankle boots, and work up so quickly you’ll be able to wear a pair and trade
another for supplies!

This pattern is in the book Doomsday Knits, which is currently available at cooperativepress.com, as well as here on Ravelry.
