From wool to cuff

My very clever sister has dyed and spun me some beautiful merino.
Since it is hand-spun, it slowly shifts in colour and I thought that
would be really cool for cuffs. I decided to make the cuffs with
a frill at the end and they have some subtle beads around the edge.

Hand-dyed, hand-spun, hand-knitted...
It doesn’t get much more hand-made than that!

And I made some cuffs stripy in a colourful
Happy-go-knitty kind of way.

I have dyed some more orange and pink cotton.
I didn’t have many skeins left to dye,
but more will arrive in a couple of weeks.

Want to see more of my sister’s gorgeous hand-spun yarn?

  1. They look great, I love the colours!
    I wonder how they look on your wrist though.
    Nice job you both :)
