These lovely little cuffs are awfully close to my idea of perfect knitting. They are interesting but not fiddly. And just as I start to feel like working one more row sounds way too hard, they’re done. Perhaps best of all, they’re something I’ll use all the time. I’ve been wearing mine pretty much every day since we took the pictures, and I’m absolutely loving them.
I made mine in the delightful Super Sweet Sock by Sweet Fiber. A friend (she totally knows my taste in yarn!) sent me a skein, and I was smitten. It’s the perfect yarn for these cuffs (lovely stitch definition and just the right amount of variegation to be interesting but not bossy).
I got in touch with Melissa, mastermind behind Sweet Fiber, and she is totally going to make one of you very happy. Somebody is going home with a skein of Super Sweet Sock in their favorite color. And wow are the colors good. We all know gray has my heart, but both Tea Leaves and Alizarin are also whispering sweet nothings in my ear. To enter, just leave a comment telling me which of the awesome colors speaks to you!
Comments left between now and the end of the day (eastern time) Friday, November 13, 2015 will be entered to win. I’ll pick a winner, contact them to get their addresses, and arrange to send yarn their way. Be sure to use a real email address so I can contact you if you’ve won (I won’t do anything with those email addresses besides notify the winner). If I do email you, I need to hear back from you within 72 hours or I will pick a new winner and contact them.
