BedSocks

I never got dressed today, so involved was I in knitting up this sock. Each section made me happier and more engaged. I made this sock for Dave to keep his tootsies warm in bed. I say sock because that is as far as I have gotten today. It turns out they are too small for him and I will have another sock for myself...after his pair gets made, that is.

I unknitted the first attempt because I didn't like the way the yarns gapped when I changed colors. Then I decided to knit the leg part flat, as in not in the round. I would be able to control the ends better that way, I figured. When it was long enough I used the mattress stitch to sew it up and then placed the stitches on double pointed needles and knit the heel as usual. But I still wanted to change colors often, and decided to switch to smaller needles to make the fabric tighter and less gaping at the color changes. I went from #2 to #0's and never considered that this would also make the foot narrower, too narrow for a man's foot. Just perfect for mine.



I was concerned that the moss stitch would bulge like it does here:

But it turned out just fine when I pulled the sock on. This is my leg, which I disappeared with Photoshop, as a public service.


I wonder why it never occured to me to make socks like this before? I love the mix of yarns and colors and stitches. So many possibilities. When I finally figure out what I am doing, I will make the pattern available.

  1. I love those socks!!! Pippy Longstocking is wanting those socks!!!! I would love a little blanket with all of those colors and stitches or a sweater. I am going to have to study this at length. Did you just use leftovers?

  2. How fun! I have been knitting socks, too, but nothing like this! Guess I will have to get more creative. It never dawned on me to switch things up like this. And super easy since the two socks don't even have to match!

  9. Great socks, they remind me of the "Sock Lady" socks from Vermont. I have a cotton pair and love them. http://www.socklady.com/sockshop/index.html
    I like that each sock is different.
