Turkish Bedsocks - $45

Saturdays, Nov. 1st, 8th, & 15th, 2-4p

It's getting chilly outside!  These little slippers are the perfect way to keep your feet toasty.  The unique construction of these bedsocks makes them easy to fit any size foot.  They are perfect to wear around the house, but they fit well inside shoes, too!  Using only 50g of sock yarn, this pattern is the perfect way to play with color and try out some of those fun and funky colorways you've been eyeing.  (We're looking at you, Koigu!)  I really can't say enough about how much I love this pattern.  They make amazing gifts, but you'll definitely want to hoard a few pairs for yourself!
