The Daily Purl

heelless sleeping socks




I didn’t start my socktoberfest socks until the last few days of October. But despite my late start, I’m excited to be back knitting socks again. Inspired by Mustaa Villaa’s socks, I cast on for a pair of Heelless Sleeping Socks by Nancy Bush. There’s a lot of purling in this stitch pattern, but they still move quickly on the needles. I knit them as written from stash yarn using my favorite rosewood dpns – all factors that make for good knitting and warm feet.
