I recently discovered a group called "Socks for Soldiers".  They have been around for 8 years now and pride themselves on the hand-knit socks that they make which are then shipped in care packages to deployed soldiers.  I think it's an awesome idea.  Especially since I am a veteran myself.  The yarn that is used is a specific type of yarn and the pattern and color both comply with military standards.

I cast on my first pair of these socks yesterday.  It's a pretty simple pattern so I'm hoping that it knits up fairly quickly.

Here's a picture of my progress so far.
