If it's the holidays...it's time for rice socks!
If you've read this before, it may be time for you to make a new rice sock, if you haven't you're in for a treat.
One of my most popular posts on Pinterest ever --re-introducting, the rice sock:
Several years ago, I learned about the rice sock. A simple, home-made solution for warming up chilly bedsheets in winter or soothing sore muscles.
The socks were such a hit at our house, I started making them as gifts for close friends and family who wouldn't laugh too hard at receiving such a strange and admittedly odd-looking item. Once they tried it, however, the skeptics were converted.
But there was a new problem. Squabbles broke out over who got to cozy up to the rice sock at night, and I ended up making several more to keep the peace.
Over the years, I have considered jazzing them up -maybe adding scented herbs like lavender or layering a soft cashmere sock as an outer layer. But it's hard to beat the no-frills simplicity of the basic model.
As my holiday gift to you, I am including the directions below. Make one for yourself first! You deserve it! Then, if you know of someone who might appreciate a thoughtful, little gift feel free to share the love & warmth. Peace.
