I finished a pair of boot cuffs for myself….getting ready for the cold Florida winters. LOL I know….. But on those few days when the temps get down below 75 I like to wear my boots & I love the way the boot cuffs look so I decided to make some. I used a pattern I found on Ravelry called Rebekahs Boot Cuffs. I loved the pattern. It was so simple and it looks so cool. I think I may actually make a pair of socks using this pattern. I used the left over yarn I had from the comfy socks, just because I love it! And I used size 7 DPN. I cast on 54 stitches and I added the ribbed cuff at the top & the bottom. I wanted to do K2P2 but the number of stitches didn’t work out so I did K1P1. I did an inch of ribbing at the top and a little more at the bottom just because I could flip them around and have more ribbing showing or less.
It was a super quick project…even for me! I really enjoyed it & will possibly make another pair. 🙂
This week I also joined a group on Ravelry. I actually saw the blog while I was looking through the reader under knitting topics. The blog is called Agrarian Artisan and the Ravelry group is called Agrarian Artisan Designs. It is her 1 year anniversary of her Ravelry forum and she is doing a KAL for a “sharf” pattern she created. I loved it and decided to join my first KAL. I’m not sure I have the right yarn in my stash. Actually I probably do but I’m still not very good at figuring that stuff out. I think I figured out what the gauge should be & I will search my stash for something to use. Though I really just want to go to my LYS and buy something new & fun! But I really shouldn’t because I have soooo much yarn at home, especially since I inherited my mom’s stash. I’m very excited to knit it. And I think it will become a Christmas gift. I hope I can keep up and finish it on time but if not at least I will have fun knitting it 🙂
