These are another pair of the Bed Socks with Novelty Yarn from "The Little Box of Socks" by Charlene Schurch and Beth Parrott.
I started with 4 fewer stitches around the ankle to make it a little more snug and I stopped decreasing the toe a little early as I like a more rounded toe. The previous Bed Socks I made had a toe that was little pointy for me (even after felting).
This pair is very comfortable - I hope I don't wear them out too quick!
I was visiting my daughter and knew that I wouldn't be able to finish the socks I had in progress, so bought some Woolcraft superwash Sock Yarn in a nearby town. I wanted to be able to leave them with her, and was able to finish some plain ol' vanilla ribbed socks. No pattern, just my basic sock contruction and I used a 2x2 rib for the leg. And they were finished before I had to leave!
