Turkish Bed Socks
The perfect travel project!
Start these little one skein slipper socks on the way to the airport and you can wear them a couple days into your trip. Inspired by a pair of socks entered in Churchmouse Yarns "Koigu & You" customer show, they were designed for the 2009 LYS Tour. The ultimate travel accessory, these socks pack well, scrunching up into the smallest of corners in your suitcase. They're great for padding around hotel rooms or walking a new city's streets. They also make great gifts and are nice for around the house. Basically, you can wear them anywhere at any time of the year!
We selected a range of colors of Koigu's beautiful Koigu Premium Merino (KPM) and Koigu Painter's Palette Premium Merino (KPPPM). Some cool triangle stitch markers from Cocoknits in a cute little tin completes this portable kit. You are ready to hit the road, or simply sit in your back yard and do some knitting!
Kit includes one skein of Koigu KPM or KPPPM, one pattern, and one set of stitch markers.
