What is a Toe Cosy I hear you say? Well, instead of a tea pot, these nifty little gems are meant to keep toes sticking out at the end of a foot cast warm and toasty – especially in the winter ❄️
Initially, I made myself one following my first foot operation back in 2015 (I had the other foot operated on the year after… but that is for another story). I found it difficult to find anything to cover my cold toes. When your foot is in pain, the cold really doesn’t help! Blankets press down on the toes and ‘big socks’ were difficult to put on.
The finished project:
On one of my visits to the hospital for follow up appointments, the nurses and hospital staff loved my *Toe cosy so much and thought it’d be idea to make a few more for others in a similar dilemma.
I’ve since made and sold quite a few of these and even now get asked for more, sometimes for the individual themselves or as a ‘get well’ gift for a friend or family member.
I was recently asked for a Rainbow *Toe cosy, just like the one I made for myself all that time ago. So I’ve sat down and made two more of them, a plainer Green one (for the boy folk) and two of the new design I call Watermelon 🍉 *Toe cosy.
I’m so excited about the Watermelon design. I wish I’d have thought of that when I had my cast on – not that I’d want to go through another foot operation to wear one, but I think these might be a hit – who wouldn’t want a Watermelon *Toe cosy to brighten up their day! 😊
Here are some of the designs I’ve made so far:-
Very sad to hear anyone requiring a *Toe cosy, but always happy to help keep those piggy’s warm and toasty with a little cheerful colour to brighten the day.
