Cuff!

A quick link for you, my little sister Sian has started a blog to record her knitting and crochet. She has caught the bug!!! She has been making loads of hats, and you have the added bonus of seeing what I would look like if I was thin! Go check her out and leave her some comments, I am sure she will be chuffed!
Now on to me! Today I have been having a total play. I am making cuffs or C+G but I wanted to play with the embellisher today, just for fun, so I made 2 cuffs, one for Sianabanana! and one for me.

I used a card frame to wrap the yarn around and then I embellished it and cut it off when joined. I felted the yarn in to make the tie. I am pleased with how it turned out, it relies totally on the gorgeousness of the rowan yarn I bought, but then it is just the start of a bit of play. Plese excuse my knarly scar, that's where I had surgery after the dog bit me a few years ago, a lasting reminder.

Love the cuff - keep meaning to have a go at these. Is yours a slip on one or wraparound? And if its slip on - how did you join it?
