toast, toast and more toast

Have you made some yet?
Back in December, I had a back injury which required a lot of resting of my back. I decided to keep casting on for toast. All knit out of Portland Tweed.
I ended up with about 7 pairs. I have 4 left. So, here's what I am thinking. I'm going to put 3 pairs (2 made out of 5004 tidal foam and 1 made out of 5003 gull grey) in the shop on Monday at around 12p.m. EST.
The fourth pair, the dark grey pair, ended up being a little shorter. I guess there was a bit of a yardage problem in that ball.
They still fit fine. And do the job of keeping you a little warmer.

I'd love to give this pair to the 13th commenter.
{Hmmm. Wondering if that will work.}
Have a fabulous weekend!

Love those colors! Could I comment 12 more times and win? :)

marianne said...

ahh, so lovely! I still have not made any Toast for myself, and now I can't figure out why! maybe because I don't have any dark gray tweed yarn. hmm...

also not 13th, but helping to get there... ;)

Captain Sharmie said...

what a beautiful pile! hope the happy winner loves them. :)

Kristyn Knits said...

hah! I was just thinking..."I need a black pair of toast to wear in G." since I'm packed, I just might cast on! he. he.

Haley said...

Good luck #13!

Dragons Knitting Lace said...

I won a pair of someone's toasts last year and love them. I'm thinking no one will post a comment now...!!!!

CelticCastOn said...

Wylie said...

Well, I don't think I'm the 13th, but I certainly would love to win a pair!

Tara said...

I'm not 13 either, close but not quite. Too bad because those sure are pretty.

ChrisC said...

Those look so cozy! It doesn't look like I'm going to be the 13th commenter (unless, maybe, I comment a few times in a row ;-) But I sure would love to win a pair of those!

I usually read of giveaways long after they are over, at least I was here when it was close! ~ Sondra

Monica said...

Oh noooooo, I missed it!!! Oh well, they do look cozy! Congrats

Hilary said...

They look so beautiful all lined up like that!

Frances said...

I am lucky in already having a pair of beautiful Toasty mitts made last winter. I discovered your pattern and blog via the terrific Pipany's blog.

And so, even if I were number 13, I would give my position to another commenter who might not already be as lucky as I am.

Best wishes!

seashoreknits said...

I know 13 has come and gone - I just had to say how SWEET of you to give away some toast! I've lost track of how many of these I have made - they are so fab.
Someone is going to be so lucky!

Love the colors. Almost wish for cooler weather again...maybe not, but still think they are fabulous. Hope 13 likes them!

Maryvonne said...

I am afraid I will have to cast on for myself!
Looks lovely, such a pile, makes you almost wish you had a backproblem;)

Victoria said...

New to your blog. Love the photos. What fab colours.

Renna said...

I love this pattern. Before, I've just knit with what I had on hand, but I like the look of yours so much, I think I need to order me some Portland Tweed!

Bethany said...

Love the colors. Boy, you've been busy! How do you do it?

Karen said...

I have made Toasty but not Toast. Love them, wear them every week at least!! I have a question about the gray pair. Do you knit two at a time, or how did you end up with them matching with a yarn shortage?? Just curious how you have such super foresight!

cover letter help said...

The return was along Meadrow past the ghost of the former CTC HQ, before heading for Chilworth. At Blacksmith Lane, I decided to sacrifice cover letter help to Newland's Corner as well as a few calories, and bade farewell to the group, to take the A25 for Dorking and home, my shorter route just breaking the 50 mile barrier.
