In Which I Needed A Quick Fix

A couple of weeks ago I was working on so many projects and it seemed like it was taking so long to finish what I was working on.  I needed to have a quick project to do, but it also needed to be something useful.  I decided to make a pair of duffers.  They teach a class on this at The Fiber Factory.  The samples look great and the pattern is a very fast knit.

The pattern is called Duffers - revisited by Mindie Tallack.  I ordered the pattern from her Rvelry shop.  

I quickly went through my leftover yarn stash and zeroed in on some remnants of Cascade 220.  It was the perfect match for this design.  Each duffer is only 19 rows of knitting and uses two strands held together.  I knit up one duffer in an hour or two watching TV.  The second one was finished a day or two latter as time allowed, between other projects.  

On October 29th I through them in to the washing machine to felt and viola!  I have a new pair of duffers!

Happy Stitching!

It is so rewarding to be able to make something so fast!
