Does anyone know of a really quick "hospital sock"

A bootie or some kind of sock made from a bulky yarn that would be very quick…for an adult??? Need to have it done by Friday morning if I’m going to do it! :shock: Any ideas about how “quick” it would be??? Oh, and for a man so that cute pocket book slipper won’t work :frowning:

I’m not quite sure what you have in mind, but there are some thick slipper type socks among these.

Thanks for the links. I had too much to do between yesterday and tomorrow though to get them done. Should’ve thought of this last week.

I could make them for “next time” but hopefully there wont be a next time!

Having been in the hospital about 2 1/2 gazillion times; having comfy slippers at home for recovery would be very, very nice, too…as would a stack of rented movies; magazines; a book; crossword puzzle…depending, of course upon his likes. Oh, and if he has to stay in bed for a while…cushy very soft pillow & supper soft case is worth a gazillion $…Just a few recommendations since you don’t have slipper knitting time :wink:

Thanks for all the tips, Rebecca. For at home, he has has Fiber Trends slippers :slight_smile:

Unfortunately, has has been in quite a few times too so we are starting to get the hang of it. I need to get something cast on for kniting in the hospital tomorrow! Right after I finish up painting the front door fram while the doggies are away at the “spa” (kennel) :slight_smile: :doh:

Having something to knit while in the hospital is a necessity. I wouldn’t be able to visit for more than 20 minutes without it. As long as I can knit, I can sit. Hey–a new saying!

I’m with ya now, honey…you need something to do while waiting! I am with you. Yes, waiting in a hospital is no fun, it’s my assumption that you are waiting while a loved one has surgery…knitting is needed; perhaps something with lots of counting so that you will be very mentally occupied?! I’ll be praying for you and whomever :wink:

Thanks. Hopefully it’ll all go smoothly.

It’s my DH…and you were right the first time. He said something on wed. while I was knitting about “you should have knit me some socks for the hospital” so of course then a lightbulb went off…I really should do that. I did want to have them ready so he’d have them tomorrow. At any rate I need to cast on SOMETHING. The slippers would be as good as anything else. I’m so tired right now though and we have to be there at 5:30…UGH! So of course he had to work late too since he’s not going to be in tomorrow :frowning:

I will hope and pray that ya’ll sleep having bee there so many times…I never sleep the night before; so go home, hot shower/bath, whatever is relaxing to you guys and do just that…relax, so that you can get a good night’s sleep.

nothing about the slippers here just wanted to give all my good thoughts and wishes to the both of you.
