elm leaves

Posted on Posted in patterns

somewhere in the back of our minds, we know we have left an important person off of the holiday knitting list. hard as we might try, we cannot for the life of us remember who it is. we know it will come to us—oh yes—with about three days to go before the gift exchange is to take place. it happens every year.

or maybe you have a fussy person on your list, one that you have difficulty figuring out. you’ve already knit her an elm row scarf, which was a hit. what can you possibly follow that up with?

well, here’s an idea . . . how about a matching pair of lace cuffs? you probably even have the yarn on hand—they take a seriously small amount of yardage (and time!!) to knit. in two sizes and lengths, to suit any taste. they are a breeze to knit and completely portable.

as it happens, they also make a great accessory to the pea vines shawlette or potager lace stole . . .

shown here, size small in louet mooi laceweight, a delectable blend of bison, bamboo, and cashmere, in colorway amber.

so heavenly to knit with, it is a gift unto itself for the knitter.

  1. Gorgeous as always. I can’t believe I’ve landed a spot for your class on Sunday in Montreal – I’m so excited! Looking forward to meeting you, Anne!

  2. Gorgeous, Anne! I’ve added it to my list…boy, am I behind!!! The very best to you and your family this Thanksgiving.

  3. These photographs are beautiful. I’m not a big fan of things around my wrists, but I want to knit the sweater more than ever!

  4. Yesss! In plenty of time to add it to the Christmas Knitting Queue! You are wonderful for getting them out so early 🙂

  5. Absolutely gorgeous! They look like they should be worn with a velvet waistcoat.
    This is definitely in my future.

  6. Those are seriously cute. I am definitely making those when I do my Elm Row. AND I love getting the extra views of the Leaving cardi. It’s scrumptious. I think I’m treating myself to some Woolen Rabbit after the initial rush dies down. I’m still knitting away on Henley w/a Twist-almost to the front armhole shaping, woo hoo!

  7. Those cuffs are so feminine and pretty, and pairing them with that sweater just seems perfect. Lovely pattern yet again! I think they would be just right for my mom.

  8. Just want to add to the questions re the sweater shown here — yarn colors together are divine … The sweater is your new one that Kim is out of a lot of the wool for ? If it is your new one can’t decide which color in the sweater I like best!
