Fair Isle Cuffs

Hi all hope you are well on this very windy day.
Though it's days like this you need to
dig out your winter gear.

So out came my latest project i just finished,
these fabulous cuffs

 I got the pattern free here
on the Little Cotton Rabbits blog.
Julie is such a talented knitter i love her
animals, I've got a rabbit on the go at the moment.

I have altered it slightly from the original,
 i had to go up a needle size for it to fit.

I used a mixture of Drops Merino 4 ply and 
Debbie Bliss 4 ply.
I'm very impressed with Drops yarn it's so soft and 
it's good on price as well.
I chose similar colours to my Nordic shawl
so i can wear them together.

I haven't done any knitting for about a year, i started
getting wrist pain's so had to stop.

When i saw these cuffs i knew i needed to make some,
so i have learnt to knit in a different way.

It was tricky at first but by the time i had completed
the first cuff i was getting there.

I don't think this was the greatest pattern to learn with 
but hay ho i got there in the end and
