Warm Toes, Eventually

The temperatures took an early dive last month, and I didn't sit there with cold feet for long before realizing that the solution was literally at my fingertips.

I grabbed a skein of yarn (Knit Picks Stroll in discontinued Twinkle Heather),

and my current favorite footie pattern (from Knit Picks Fancy Feet), and whipped up a pair of foot warmers.

Before you know it, I was showing them off to visiting KD, who immediately noted that they exactly matched her pajama pants.


Fortunately, I knew where there was more yarn... (and modified the pattern for a short-row heal and 2x2 ribbed cuff):

  1. Beautiful! Those look really cute.

    Though I confess, I find that when I knit open weaves like that, my feet *feel* colder even if in fact they are not. *grin*

    I love that heather yarn. I had some in a kit I bought from Knit Picks. I used them for some fingerless mitt I knit for Andrea a couple years ago.

    Love the color. Wish they hadn't discontinued it! But that seems to be the case with all the KP colors I like.
