U.S. Highway 66 -- popularly known as Route 66 , Main Street America or the Mother Road -- holds a special place in American consciousness and evokes images of simpler times, mom and pop businesses, and the icons of a mobile nation on the road. One of the original U.S. Highways, Route 66 was established on November 11, 1926—with road signs erected the following year. The highway, which became one of the most famous roads in America, originally ran from Chicago, Illinois, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona before ending at Los Angeles, California, covering a total of 2,448 miles . –

When I was 12 I took a Greyhound bus from Ohio to California and much of the ride was along Route 66. It was a memorable experience seeing all the cities and the country side change!

Knit from cuff to toe with a wide cabled panel and an optional fold over cuff the socks are a fairly quick knit as the pattern is a mirror image and intuitive.
