These sweet bed socks from the book Simply Knitted With Love are a very quick and easy knit. Knitted flat on two needles I should have known and I can't believe it took me so long to try them! I did however make them way too big and had to frog a bit to resize which put my completion date back by a day.
I knitted them on the recommended size 6mm needles but I think I will try a second pair in a 5.5mm needle as I'm a slightly loose knitter. Of course i'm doing this to make sure I get the pattern just right *wink*
After seaming up and sewing the toes I put them on straight away and boy they are toasty warm! Rowan cocoon is a messy yarn to work with as it fluffs all over your clothes but it is so soft and lush that it's a perfect choice of yarn for this project.
I can confirm that these bed socks will go on my Christmas gift making list! (is it still too soon?)
