I don’t know about you, but I hate cold ankles, especially where my bootcut or skinny jeans don’t reach the top of my shoes and there’s a gap. The Wheatsheaf Boot Cuffs are a very quick knit, great for gifts (Christmas is coming!) and will help you use up some stash. I used just over 200 yds of the Lamb’s Pride Worsted for the Turquoise pair using 5.5mm needles for the cables and 3.75mm needles for the ribbed cuff. The purple pair are made using Knit Picks WOTA Superwash and I dropped to 5mm needles for the cable section. Super speedy and they fit over my welly boots, my ankle boots and even my wide fit knee high leather boots.
We recently released our Wheatsheaf Mitten Pattern, for sale on Ravelry. I used some wonderful Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Worsted which was a gift from the lovely Joan Dyer. The mittens use different needle sizes to achieve four sizes from Ladies Small/Child up to a Mens size.
They’re a quick knit, a few evenings by the fire and are toasty warm. Great for gifting and a chance to use up a bit of stash, you’ll need between 160-300 yards (depending on size and if you make the longer, folded cuff.
My lovely friend, Tanja Luescher, released a fabulous pattern today. It’s for the Last Minute Magic Cowl, is made using bulky/chunky yarn and 5mm needles. It’s a super quick knit for those of you making Christmas or Holiday Gifts. Tanja used some Eco-alpaca but this would be lovely in any chunky/bulky yarn and will fly off your needles.
With the coupon code Magic, the pattern is 75 % off for 7 users, 50 % off for 10 users, then 25 % off for everyone until November 4th, end of day
