I know it seems way too soon to be talking about arm-warmers but, if you’re really smart, you’ll cast these on now so they’re all ready when the weather turns cold.  SoftCables by La Maison Rililie are nice and long which makes them wearable like unattached sleeves but they also work well down low on the hands as fingerless gloves. Knit in the round, these are simple tubes combining stockinette and ribbing with a single, crisp-looking cable up the center.  The designer recommends 100% merino yarn and we can’t think of anything cozier than a set of these knit up with the exquisitely soft Wookfolk Far. I am not exaggerating even a tiny bit when I say that Far is as soft as cashmere (softer maybe?). Treat yourself or someone you love!  I’m already thinking holiday gifts, are you…?
