travel knitting

I've been working on a pair of socks, they make a pretty good travel project. I bought some KnitPicks Felici Sport sock yarn a while ago and it's knitting up SO soft and warm, I can't wait to get this pair done so I can wear them! So far I've been knitting all my socks using the Priscilla's Dream Socks pattern which has a short row heel and toe and is customizable to fit my tiny feet. There seem to be so many different ways to knit socks out there I'd like to give another way a try though. Do you have a favorite method you can recommend and if so, what makes it awesome?
