Poor Miss Bates! As we know, from Mr. Knightley’s lecture to Emma, “She is poor; she has sunk from the comforts she was born to; and, if she live to old age, must probably sink more.” These cuffs are just the sort of project sure to be treasured by Hetty Bates herself—a precious smidgen of luxurious fiber intended to dress up the ordinary, common clothes of the workday week. Simple lace patterns, knit in the round, become the perfect showcase for a wool/silk blend with lovely drape and sheen. Hetty’s Sunday Cuffs offer a touch of warmth or a bit of color to peek from a sleeve in a quick-to-finish project.
