View Full Version : 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 :(

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

3 or 4 of these were from here: http://www.socknitters.com/sockpatterns/weight.htm (a lot of the patterns don't have pics)

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 ;)

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

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) :) :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 ;)

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 :(

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.
