Hand Knit Cuffs and Thank Yous




Do you not love this?! This is my newest addition to the cuffs collection. I think it’s awesome. Honestly, anything with a brownie or girl scout patch seems pretty cool to me. I feel like I have the market on something just ready to explode.

I have two other cuffs waiting to be posted – a red one and a white one with a chain knitted into it. I’ll get those posted in the next couple days. They are pretty hot.

I also have to thank some folks who helped me figure out an i-cord problem (for those of you who are non-knitters, it’s a way of making a strong cord to use as drawstrings, decorations, etc. Mine will be for the purses I’m designing). These are the helpful crafters – Check out their shops!

  2. Alright! I knew someone would like the girlscouts!

    Just in case you are a knitter littmissmeshell - It's really easy to give the yarn that chunky texture. You cast on however many stitches you want. Then, you knit 1, purl 1 through the first row. Every row after that you knit the purls and purl the knits. I think it's called the moss stitch (either that or the seed stitch - I can't ever remember).
