now here’s a little stocking stuffer to go with the motheye scarf you may have knit for someone’s main holiday gift . . .
or hey, if you coveted that yarn the whole time you knit with it and wanted so badly to keep the scarf for yourself, here’s a reward for being generous—knit a little keepsake for yourself with the leftovers.
these sweet little lace cuffs take almost no time to knit and are a great beginner lace project, since they are worked in the round with the right side always visible.
for a more experienced lace knitter, these can be dashed off in no time and earmarked for a hostess or teacher gift. you know that at some point, you’ll need something you can grab and wrap up in a jiffy. what better use for a small ball of leftover lace yarn?
and don’t let the delicate look fool you—these provide a nice layer of warmth over the back of my hands, while leaving my fingers completely free to work—great for typing, traveling, or even knitting.
feel free to size them up a little more to wear as boot toppers; they make a great wind baffle and are way prettier than felt boot liners.
personally, i love how a little accessories like this can be pulled from my pocket to totally flip the mood of a coat or jacket, when i’m through with business for the day.
it’s no fun for outerwear to be all work and no play, now, is it?
speaking of which, i’m going to leave it to your imagination what a little change-up like this will do for that charcoal gray business suit you wear once a week.
use with caution—they are seriously fun to wear, but are known to have devastating effects on others.
and now for one last parting shot with the sassy coat . . .
