Something New

So I'm going to try something fun.  Remember the little cuffs I've been playing with for the last week or two (with the yummy sweet fiber yarn)?  Well, they came up to Maine with us for some pictures (nothing like taking advantage of the scenery on vacation), and now they're ready to be released. I'll be putting them out Tuesday, and I want to try something a little different for this release.  The pattern will be for sale like usual, but I'm also going to send a special code to everyone on the mailing list to let them grab the [...]

So the cuffs are done (yes, both!) and will be showing themselves off with proper photos any moment now.  But before you can take the pretty photos, you have to block the knitting.  Blocking flared cuffs can be a bit perplexing.  You want the wrist nice and round, and the bottom all spread out.  You can put them on a mitt blocker (if you're lucky enough to have such a thing) and then lay them down on a mat and pin out the flare.  But that takes forever to dry and leaves you with a crease where it was folded [...]

So the cuff is done.  It is adorable (and comfy, and soft, and warm, and all the other things you'd want a cuff to be).  But it is also weirdly hard to photograph (that it is a bit damp doesn't help, but sunset comes early these days, and if I waited for it to dry it would be dark, so I'll take what I can get). Eduardo helps give a sense of the proportions of the thing, but his wrist is rather wider in comparison to his hand than is mine, so things look a bit elongated. The actual proportions [...]

I have a long-standing, deeply-held, and unabashed fondness for flared cuffs.  They're the piece of knitting I wear most often (gloves and hats feel like outer wear, whereas my cuffs I can totally wear in my drafty house without feeling like a weirdo who needs to get new windows).  They leave your fingers free for typing or knitting or cooking or whatever else it is you need to be getting on with, but somehow do actually manage to keep you warmer.  They take surprisingly little time to knit.  And they're just downright adorable. Or they are, after they're finished and [...]
