>Cuffs & Muffins

>This morning I used the dreaded Bond Ribber to knit the cuffs of the shrug that I’m making. Here’s how they came out:

2 cuffs
Much to my surprise the ribber worked perfectly at the first attempt so there was no shouting and swearing and throwing things. Here’s a close up:

I took the cuffs off the machine onto waste yarn then hand knitted the cast off. I thought that would give it a neater edge than if I’d done a machine knit cast off.
So that just leaves the bands to knit which will probably be done at the weekend.
I would like to get the Jaeger Crinklespun sweater finished off before then and do a bit more of the cross stitch which, to be honest, I’m sick of the sight of now.

What did you think of those culottes in my last post? I thought they were pretty bad. This is from the same magazine:

You might not find it funny but there’s just something about the looks on their faces and the word “muffins” above that girl’s head. It cracked me up when I first saw it – maybe it’s just my twisted sense of humour.

I know the photo is a bit too big – flickr gives you a choice of sizes when you upload them and I thought the next size down was a bit too small. I would have been better off re-sizing it before I uploaded it but it’s too late now. Muffins.

Talk to you later,
