Gift Crafting: Leethal Quick Knits 10-yard cuffs

Don't you want these?

I know!  

I wanted these so much, that I learned how to knit with these in mind.  Here's the beauty:  The patterns are simple enough for a beginner, knit up really quickly, use only a bit of yarn, and let you use all those gorgeous buttons you love.

I got to knitting these after my amazing friend Elaine brought me back a bagful of gorgeous yarn from Scotland. 

 Gift ideas:  Make them as stocking stuffers, friendship bracelets, or co-worker gifts.  Add one to a card, or even to the outside of a larger gift.  Wrap one around a bag of candy!  Buy the pattern or kit for a knitter, or someone who wants to learn.  It's a great way to use up yarn scraps and to become acquainted with different techniques.  Enjoy!
