I've been focusing this week on gifts you might want to knit for someone else, but here's a project you just might want to keep for yourself.
These Bulky Knee Socks are the perfect thing to wear to bed (under your fleece pajama pants, of course!) on those really cold nights when your pile of blankets is just not going to do. I am the sort of person who is always cold, while my husband is rather the opposite, so these socks get a lot of use in my house.
They're great to wear to bed but can also work almost like slippers around the house, and I have been known to wear them out of the house with boots (though they are really bulky socks, so they will not fit in most of your shoes).
These are some socks that are not going to take you long at all to knit and they're going to be really enjoyed no matter who you knit them for. They go so quickly, you could knit some for a gift and some for yourself if you were feeling really generous. Maybe.
