Bulky Socks for Bed.

These socks started out as a bit of a whim.  I was going through some boxes in the basement and noticed a few partial balls of acrylic yarn, left over from other projects.  Inspiration struck me and I thought how I couldn't find my slippers ( I blame this on the dog) and wanted something quick.

After I finished them I realized that I would probably just wear them to bed as they are quite slick on the floors.  I may add a coating or liner of some sort but for now they are cozy and are keeping my feet warm as the weather gets cooler.  There is no pattern as yet.  I went through some sock knitting books and decided that I would do toe-up as I had a very limited amount of yarn available.  In fact I had about 1 meter of the variegated yarn left when I finished the socks.  These were knit with two strands, one plain and one variegated on 6mm dpns.
