It's pretty chilly on the east coast these days. I'm always cold, especially my hands and feet, and in winter that just translates to freezing. I had to do something about that. So I knit a pair of Toast. This pattern is called Toast for a reason. They keep your hands and arms nice and toasty. But they could be called Cake, because they were a piece of cake to make.

P.S. It's awfully hard to take pictures of gloves while you're wearing them.

Pattern: Toast by a Friend to knit with
Needles: Size 7 dpn's
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool in Grey Mix


  1. oh nice!! (and I thought that with sewing all those napkins your hand would be warm anyway...)

  2. These are on my to-do list too, glad to hear they are so easy! Thanks for the comment about my ring :) I have been thinking about the whole napkin/quilt thing ever since I saw your post... we are just going to do a very informal after-ceremony party at home (I have already been married before with all the hoopla) but was thinking of making little cocktail napkins with fabrics and then using them to make a small quilt. Oh! Or I could have people sign a piece of large white fabric and cut up the napkins to make a border... have to go write that one down. Anyway, thanks for the inspiration!

  3. yea portraits are not for them and they do look warm.

  4. Love them. They are in my Ravelry que - maybe moving a bit higher. g

  5. Nice job on the Toast's. What a great pattern!

  6. Those look so toasty warm. Great job. Very easy pattern you say. Must try myself.


I love hearing from my readers - thanks for leaving a comment!
