Boot Candy Boot Cuffs for the Sister!

Pinterest is more of a "choose your own adventure" in my opinion... and I love it :). I love finding new crochet ideas there honestly my crochet board is my favorite! :)

At any rate my sisters are also on "board" (ahahaha - pun intended ;)). My older sister came across a pair of boot cuffs she thought was pretty cute (and they are! :) ;)) on pinterest and requested I make a cream colored pair for her. So... insert some of grandma's yarn stash, a few emails, pictures of yarn and phone calls later I started a pair for her! :)

I managed to find two skeins of the same dye lot that were of a cream color. I held two strands of worsted weight as I worked these beauties up! I know my tension varies when I knit (depending how crazy the day has been :)) so I casted on both cuffs to circular size 10 needles and worked them flat to keep the size consistent. I wasn't sure how working with both ends of the skein would work out, thinking maybe I'd have a bit of tangling going on once I had to turn for a new row but figured out a system. I'm happy to report there was minimal tangling! :) 4 days later I have pictures to share! :) :) These work up quickly and I love the versatility! :)
