more toasty

Tuesday, February 03, 2015

Well, I mentioned that I was working on Toasty.
Just Toasty.
All out of this yarn.  Love this yarn for this project.  Hello machine washable and dry-able.  I love the big wide stripes and playing with color combos.  I'm trying a new thumb technique.   I'll share after I finish.  It might just be our new favorite.
The pairs with only two colors, I knit 21 rows of one color and then changed to a contrasting color knitting for 55 rows.
The pairs with three colors, I knit 2 different colors of 21 rows each and then changed to a third color for 34 rows.
This still makes them 11 inches long.
These will all be Valentine gifts.  I have one more pair to knit.
And THEN I'm on to that sweater!

    I've made so many of these but never multi-colored - I love them and can't wait for instructions for a new thumb! Thanks so much for sharing...once again!

  7. Can't wait for the thumb tip!!!!

  8. I love the pink combo ones and those greys with the white!

  9. Those are beautiful!!

  10. These are just lovely. I love the pink one and those with the 3 shades of gray. I wonder what a pair in light gray and pink would look like. I do love that color combo.
