Falling on the wrong side of ignorance

I was curious, cause i've heard about the toe up socks with out a mate can often become the bags filled with rice. My grammy made them out of fabric one year, but out of fabric, i mean heavy, thick brocade fabric. I'd like to knit one out of the dejected/abandoned sock I made. If there isnt a pattern i could probably develop one myself but I'm hoping it doesnt come to that.

hmm. maybe you could just line the sock and fill it with rice, maybe some lavender or other good smelling herbs and seal the end?  Or knit either two long rectangles, seam up the three sides, line, fill with rice and close the end... Or knit a rectange in the round (sort of like a purse).  I would think you would have to have a lining of some sort so the rice won't come out.... Actually, that sounds like an idea for me!  My back is aching for one of these! I am sure one of the talented ladies here could find a better idea than mine!

Maybe you could make it out of a sock and then knit a cover for it...that way you could change to match your mood but if your needing thid i guess that would always mean blue (sad), red (anger), or green (jealousy of those w/ out pain). i guess this would work...i dunno how to knit

you already have a lonely sock?

if the knit is tight - you might not need to line it.  that said - you might want to - so you can wash it.  I'd make a sack out of some sort of thin cotton cloth (think old sheet/pillow case)  just smaller than the sock.
Then you can pop the rice bag into the sock and maybe sew a button on at the open end of the sock (if the knit is loose - you may not need to make a button hole/loop)

i have a poor dejected mistake ridden sock that is sitting in the frog pond. I worked on this idea for a bit last night and came up with knitting a tube on dpn's sewing up one end of the tube once it's done and felting it. Then after letting it dry thoroughly (rice molds right?) I'd fill it with rice and maybe use some essential oils to scent it.

The pattern I have so far is:

Size 7 dpn's

co 45 stitches, divide evenly between 3 needles and knit all rounds

continue for desired length (im thinking anywhere from six to seven inches would be a fair length)

If anyone wants to try this out let me know how it goes please!
