I’m knitting the partner cuffs but I’m now learning about miniskeins: they differ.
The second cuff has specks of caramel and none of the blue tones that the first one has. The one that I love particularly. I have no use for caramel unless covered in salt and chocolate.
The second green cuff has way more brown and muddy colours in it. It’s not as crisp and Spring like as the first one, which I adore:
These would not look pretty when worn together.
I’m going to have to knit new partner cuffs, top down, with the remainders of the first mini skeins. That way they will look the same when I wear them, peeping from under my sleeve cuffs.
When I run out of yarn I can use the mini skeins I’m knitting with in the pictures to finish the bottom parts of the wrist part.
The thing is: the remainder skeins of the first cuffs are in the city. As you can see from the table cloth I’m at the cabin for the weekend…
What will I dooooo this weekend??
Guess I’ll have to look and see if I’ve got some fingering weight here for another set of cuffs…
I still need steele-ish blue ones. And some wool white ones. And a set in gleaming silk would be lovely! Could also do with lavender ones for sure.
I made a colour board of all the cuff colours I’m thinking about:
Shortly I’ll be gearing up to go hunting in the stash room for one of these colours. Because I need to knit cuffs this weekend!
Or I could knit my sock.
I brought it with me of course. Would be great if I finish that today and its partner too because tomorrow a new KAL starts that I want to participate in.
My spinning wheel is also here with the project on it that I enjoyed so much last weekend. It will be raining this weekend but it will be lovely sitting in front of the glass doors, with the green outside just there, and spinning. I could not knit cuffs but spin instead.
By the way, we’re only talking yarn needs for today anyway because tomorrow I’m spending the day getting reacquainted with my weaving loom. No time to knit cuffs.
No, I’m taking no chances, I’m heading off into the stash room to look for cuff yarn. Have a great Saturday!
