Inspired by the old fashioned glamour of bed socks and jackets in my vintage knitting books, these would be ideal for keeping your feet comfortable on a long plane ride. I used wool but they could also be made in cotton. The elasticity of the I-cord allows you to slip them on and off without worrying about untying. A quick and easy project, and a lovely gift.
