The socks I started before we left on this grand adventure are finally finished. They fit, and I really like them for all their craziness. The heel was a new construction for me. I knit the Crazy Monkey pattern, which utilizes a no pick-up gusset heel. It is a bit tighter than my usual socks, and I think I may prefer it.
With my socks done, I think we can now think about going home. Of course, I will need to cast on for a new pair in the interim.
