just have to trust me on that. I didn't want to stretch them
out before sending them on as a gift.
Pattern: Turkish Bed Socks
Source: Churchmouse Yarn and Teas
Materials: I only used half of a skein of Abstract Fiber Supersock, in the color "Burnside Bridge"; and US 1 needles.
Modifications: The pattern includes directions for only one size. To make them a bit smaller I knit with smaller needles than the pattern recommended.

you another view of the Turkish Bed Socks.
Pros: These bed socks are a great gift for someone who might not be wild about wearing hand knit socks out and about, yet still needs warm feet while hanging around the house. Plus they make for a fun and quick knit.
Cons: After paying full price for the pattern, I was surprised to discover that it only gave directions for one size.
Yet now that I have completed a pair, I think it was worth it. It is pretty easy to adjust the pattern for size, and I will be making more of these. In fact, I am almost done with my second pair.
As a bonus, when I visited the Churchmouse Yarns website today, I found that they currently have a lovely scarf pattern available as a free download.
Speaking of freebies, I am finishing up a project that I plan on giving away to one of you. (The project has to remain a secret for now, but I think it is something any knitter would appreciate.) I would like to thank my friends and readers for visiting, so check back soon for the contest. I'm off to link up with Tami's Amis FO Friday post to get reacquainted with everyone. Have a good weekend!
