Turkish Bed SocksSeptember 8, 2014
Here’s a fun little project I recently finished. These little socks are super easy to make and make great use of all that sock yarn laying around. I guess a lot of people like to wear them with clogs, but I made mine just for something comfy to wear around the house. The pattern is from Churchmouse Yarns and Teas shop on Bainbridge Island. If you’re ever in the Seattle area, it’s a great little shop to visit. And they have a lot of terrific patterns on their website.
I made little tassels to go onto mine and I really like the look. The yarn I used is from Pagewood Farm – it’s hand dyed, super soft 80% merino, 20% nylon. The color is Lavender Fields. I used #3 circular needles and this made a perfect size for my foot, which is an 8-1/2. I loved the pattern because there was hardly any purling and I could just go round and round on my circulars using Magic Loop. These knit up really fast and I’m definitely going to make another pair in a different color.
