Only Four Years

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.
