Yes, you read it here a week ago, the knitting was complete, so what’s happening now?!! What’s with the Very Berry Knitting – Extra?!
When I had finished knitting before, I still had some yarn left over, and of course that called for making something else…
The purpose of the project to begin the year; was to use up some yarn I had bought for no reason; and of course because craft content is my thing; to have something reasonably quick and useful to share! Completing the Very Berry Hat; I used up a lot less of the yarn than I thought I would.
Very Berry Knitting – Extra
Instead of finding a pattern, to use up the rest, I ended up roughly figuring out that I could use a similar method, (with less stitches cast on) to make some wrist warmers, so I went with it…
So I was, of course still working with the same ball of doubled DK, on 9mm needles; and thought I’d write down as I went; because you do kind of need to match up if you’re making two!
It was pretty successful, and here’s what I ended up with:
These handmade mittens were actually super quick to make, taking around an hour each, while I was chilling watching a film.
If you would be interested in me sharing the pattern for either the hat or wrist warmers, let me know; I can do a blog post.
Of course it didn’t stop there, as, it turns out these are a great quick craft project, and a fab stash-buster! It was my mums birthday recently, and I made here a pair too!
Finding some black yarn, and a small ball of mustard yellow, I balled them together and spent another evening knitting away; to make her a pair in this very bee-like colourway.
It’s been really nice the last few weeks working on something that is not a scarf, or one of the two jumpers I’m allegedly working on! (though I’m feeling way more motivated, so maybe I’ll dig one out!)
