This was the slowest ribbing ever. Less than two inches, and it took me nearly four years to complete!
I’ve mentioned these repurposed sleeves on and off over the years — always with a bit of bafflement as to why they never got done — and now, suddenly, they are. Originally intended as sleeves of a sweater, now turned into legwarmers because the Harrisville Shetland turned out too itchy, despite several washes, steams, conditioner and shampoo treatments. Which means even as legwarmers I can only wear them over tights, but that’s all right. Cable pattern is my own unvention.
