From Hip To Knit:

Satisfaction guaranteed. Socks are small enough to progress quickly, even on small needles. Their portability makes them great for car trips or knitting in small spaces. The magic in turning a heel never ceases to amaze most knitters. The biggest challenge is making two socks come out exactly the same size. These socks feature stripes not only for the sake of design but also as a counting device - as long as the numbers add up, your socks will come out the same size. But why make identically striped twins when fraternal twins can be so much more interesting?
