I have some wonderful friends… one came to visit shortly after I arrived home from hospital and asked if there was anything she could do for me and I replied that maybe there was.

One thing that anyone who has been in foot plaster will tell you, is that your toes get really cold.

If I’m going outside then I have a thin blue elasticated plastic slip-on ” shoe cover” , of the sort that people wear over their shoes in  indoor swimming pools if they  have to be pool-side with their street shoes on.

Hospitals issue the same sort of shoe covers to protect plaster casts from rain, puddles and dirty pavements and they are excellent at doing that (for a while at least) but in winter, these little plastic slips do nothing to keep your toes warm whilst outside during trips to hospital etc.

My toes have been freezing cold since I made the journey home from the hospital, so, knowing that this friend is able to knit, I asked her if  it might be possible that she could knit me some sort of sock that would fit around my cast.

She came up trumps and within a week or so I received a lovely “sockette”, or maybe I should be calling it a”foot hat” that is doing wonders in keeping my toes warm both inside and out, and I’m totally loving it!!!

This person knows who she is, she’s a fabulous knitter as well as a fabulous friend!
