A while back I posted about the bed socks I knitted for my grandma for Christmas. I thought they looked a little boring since they didn't have any patterning at all, so I picked them up again and added a little bit of cross stitch along the sides. I tried to make snowflake shapes on the foot at first, but that made the socks much bulkier, so I undid it again. The stripes aren't particularly fascinating, of course, but at least they break up the plain socks a little bit. Who knows what else I might add before Christmas!
