You know you've made a pair of slipper socks worthy of a South Dakota winter when they stand up by themselves.
These are Baba's Bed Socks. A very easy, very fast pattern. Knit with two strands of Wool-Ease these were done quicker than you can say, "I'm really sick of slipper socks." Now I am not a big fan of thick yarn because I find it a bit cumbersome to work with on DPN's but I think these were worth it. I wish I'd been making them all along.
But it's too late now because this is officially my last pair of slipper socks for a while. Actually I haven't even finished the second one but there's less than 20 rows to do so I'm considering it done. To celebrate the end of the Great Slipper Sock Making Extravaganza Of 2010 let's have a mini-contest. Simply leave a comment and the random number generator will do it's work and we'll have a winner tomorrow night after 6PM PST. The prize? Umm, a rat? How about a brown tabby? A rat? OK, something out of my stash. I'm not sure what it will be but it'll be good, I promise.
