Date: Thu, 04 Dec 97 10:22:25 CST From: "Beverly M Tigrett" (firstname.lastname@example.org) Subject: [BOND] Bed Buddy Thought I would share this with the list as my gift pattern. I have made up 30 of them for gifts for people I work with. 1. Take a mans white tubesock put about 3-4 cups rice with 1 package of potpourri (the kind that comes in a small envelope) I get it at Wal-Marts for 97 cents in crafts dept.) Cut off ribbed end of sock and ziz-zag closed. 2. Then for the knitting - I cast on 42 stitches and just did straight knitting for about 75 rows of course this is after I did my 6 rows WY. (you can do stripes, whatever you want for design) 3. Then knit about 10 rows and rib. 4. Take off hem and pick up other end and stitch the end and side together. Basically what you have is a knitted tube sock for a cover. I attach a note saying: "Place in microwave for 3-5 minutes then place on aches, pains, sore muscles. Or place in bed to warm bed. Do not get wet or you will have cooked rice." These are very easy - quick to make and inexpensive. Hope these instructions are clear enough if not let me know. Enjoy Bev in Tex
