Cosy Toes

I have a finish! I made a pair of red socks for my sister as a Christmas gift and I liked them a lot, so I knitted a pair for myself. Her's were more lacy and mine are just a 3x1 rib but both pairs are cosy. And of course I have already cast on another pair.

Hey! do you see the yarn there in the basket? That is a discontinued Lion Brand Amazing colorway called Constellations. I found this wonderful pattern called The Prudence Crowley Vest that I know will look wonderful in this yarn. The gauge in the pattern is the same gauge that I get with this yarn, although they are two different yarns using different size needles. I know this will work. Pretty cool vest, huh?

I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!


  1. Those fancy red socks are perfect for ringing in the new year. Happy 2016, Paula. Wishing you the best year ever.

  2. Oh my what snugly socks. And such a cheerful color! Happiest of 2016 to you and yours.

  3. Yes, that vest will be lovely knit with the yarn in the basket.

    Love the socks! Happy New Year to you and your family.
