I’ve been really good this fall at staying on task and working on the things that are on my list of things to be working on, but the strain was building. A little whimsy and spontaneity needed to happen. I had bought a new pair of boots and they’re a lot shorter than the boots I usually wear. I wanted something to smooth the transition between pants and boots and help with my favourite part of autumn – layering. So I promised myself that when I finished my cardigan (it’s blocking, pictures soon) I could ignore the list for a little while and make boot cuffs.
They’re fantastic. They make me feel as happy and as stylish as I hoped they would.
Pattern: Thermal Boot Cuffs, a free Ravelry pattern
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash (1946 silver grey heather)
I wanted ankle size rather than calf so I knit them on 39 sts instead of the 54 recommended for the smallest size.
I knit them in a day. I will definitely be making at least one more pair, possibly the Reversible Boot Cuffs since I love the idea of getting two looks from one project. These could get addictive!
