I have been knitting on and off since my teens, but became somewhat obsessed with it in 2007. I love squishy wools for the short, mild Los Angeles winters, and like cottons and blends for the rest of the year. I really believe that even beginner knitters can create something beautiful and useful, so I strive to keep patterns simple yet original. I am Goodstuff on Ravelry, and blog from time to time about knitting and life here: http://www.knitandtravelandsuch.blogspot.com/.
I have sold designs to Interweave Knits, Knitpicks, Creative Knitting magazine, KNIT magazine (Yarn Forward), Yarn magazine, Knit Now magazine, Classic Elite Yarns, The Sanguine Gryphon, and Three Irish Girls Yarns.
This is a set of 3 different cuffs or wrist warmers.
A great look this year is the casual fiber or fabric accessory like these knitted cuffs or wrist warmers (or bracelets). It is a great way to use up small amounts of a special yarn, even hand-spun.
Cavendish is the lacy one. Put it on to accent a tanned wrist, or a pretty ankle.
Lancaster uses a color-changing yarn like Noro Kureyon Worsted to create chevron stripes. Add great vintage buttons for a trendy look. It fastens with buttons and buttonholes, or snap fasteners with the buttons sewn on decoratively. A crocheted loop for the button closure is another option.
Portsmouth uses a color-changing yarn, but it is knit on the diagonal to create slanted stripes. An applied i-cord along the edges provides a neat finish. It's a fun way to show off unique vintage buttons. It fastens with buttons and buttonholes, or snap fasteners with the buttons sewn on decoratively or a crocheted loop.
Each one uses less than 1/4 of a ball, so make several!
