thrummed bed socks

sheilajoyce_gwDecember 27, 2007

Has anyone combined wool socks and roving to make some really warm winter bed socks? I bought a pair at a holiday bazaar last year, and now I would like to make some for family when I finish current projects. I also do not know where to find roving to purchase to make such cozy bed socks, nor do I know what to look for.

I also have no idea how to work with roving and am looking for input from experienced knitters.

Roving is wool fibers that have been washed and combed/carded by machine into a long continuous 'group' of wool fibers, , but are not spun into can easily pull them apart, so it would definitely be best to knit this together with yarn, for stability. ...and roving can be purchased at many yarn shops, of course weaving and spinning shops....and, on line. There are several different forms of roving, but what you'd probably do best with is something called pencil roving, simply because it is about the size of a pencil...duh!
