You Call Them What?
Calf Wraps! I call them Calf Wraps, a.k.a. Boot Cuffs. One of the newest fashion items to hit the needles are boot cuffs. But, as I looked into designing a knitted pair, I realized that it's really your calfs that are getting wrapped up - hence, "Calf Wraps."
They are so superbly simple and one skein of Cascade 220 worsted weight yarn on size 5 double pointed needles will quickly make up a pair. I just listed the pattern for $3.00 in our Etsy shop and I hope that you'll cross your fingers and toes that the pattern does well.
And yesterday I finished this lovely pair of hand cranked socks made with "Step" sock yarn. They'll be listed in our other Etsy shop tomorrow.
Our middle grandson, Mitchell, wanted a pair of red mittens for Christmas. So, I also finished those up yesterday. But, don't tell him, ok?
And then I thought that you might enjoy seeing what our family room looks like this season. Usually we put the tree in the front room, but decided that it would be nice by the fireplace this year. Don't you just love the Christmas season?
Since we have a new design out, would you like to have a little giveaway? How about if you leave a comment on this post and tell everyone what you're knitting for gifts this year. On Saturday, Dec. 8th, I'll randomly draw one lucky name to win a downloadable PDF copy of our "Calf Wraps" pattern. Please be sure to leave contact info for me, ok?
