A fetching present
This pair has actually been almost done since October, but before weaving in the ends (in December - it only took me something like six weeks from the date I cast off to really finish them...) I made a change from the picot edge bo to the regular bo to avoid the top opening flaring out. I still think the picot edge bo is prettier, though!
These were a Christmas/birthday present for a friend, who hinted she`d like her own pair back in October when she saw my Fetching. The yarn is Austermann`s Inka-Color with 70% alpaca and 30% wool. These are really warm and snuggly, and I think the longer cuff (also requested by aforementioned friend) is more practical for winter (in Finland anyway). I have to make myself a pair with a longer cuff too. Plus, these are such an instant gratification kind of project!* I think I need that.
Here in my blog more about these and the changes I made.
*If you don`t put off weaving in the ends, that is.
