completed bed socks for Boss Lady

I finished these a couple of weeks ago, but never took a photo. So, here they are -- the completed "Bed Socks for Boss Lady".


Project Specs:

Yarn: Debbie Biss Baby Cashmerino
Color: 204? sky blue
Gauge: 6 sts/in
Needles: size 3 Addi Turbo
Pattern: Friday Harbor Socks from KOTR
Modifications: Added a row of eyelets between the cuff and the leg to run ribbon through (per Boss Lady's specifications that bed socks are always be-ribboned)

These looked pretty scrunchy until I blocked them on some homemade sock blockers ... you can see that the ribbing is still pulling in a bit, which is fine. I'm sure that between now and Christmas, it will relax even more. The cuff flattened out nicely. I probably could have blocked them out a bit better, but they are ok the way they are.

Back to the big, boring, brown poncho. Yawn.

  • Very cute, so girly. Looks like something I would have worn with white sandals as a kid.

  • Very pretty bedsocks. I like the ribbon on them too. Makes them a little more feminine and a bit flirty.

    Love the new house! Wow, sounds like losing the other house was a really good thing. *Quick prayer all goes well.*
