The name for the design came from the circumstances that influenced the socks. A few months ago I had a weekend away with friends, flying with hand baggage only, so I needed a knitting project that was small enough to pop in my purse, simple enough not to need to worry about losing a printed pattern, and that didn't require anything sharp enough that would get confiscated by airport security. I also wanted to use this particular yarn as it was one I'd been saving for socks for myself and I wanted the socks as a memory of a fun weekend away with knitting friends. All those aspects came together to make In-Flight Entertainment - socks with an easily memorised stitch pattern, ideal for travel knitting, enough to keep me occupied on the trip but easy to pick up and put down or to work while chatting, and not needing cable needles or anything not aircraft-friendly, and that would allow my special skein of yarn to shine. (I mean that last one figuratively and literally, the yarn has a gorgeous sparkle!)
If you'd like to buy this pattern, or any of my other knitting designs, you can find the patterns in my Ravelry store.
