Scrappy Mitts

After finishing my Stitch Sampler Shawl (which I just LOVE!), I wanted to use the left over yarn for a small project.

At first, I thought a hat, but then I purchased the newest Simply Knitting Magazine and  read an article on using knitting to decompress (which I have really needed the past few weeks).

The project was fingerless mitts.

I immediately cast on.

I didn’t follow the row pattern per se, but I did follow the amount of rows and ribbing to make the correct length.

Once again, I love the colors in these yarns.

Knit flat, then seamed.

I chose to crochet one row of single crochet around the thumb hole.

A quick knit, I love how soft these are!

Past making of fingerless knits reminded me that I needed to do a stretchy bind off so it would’t be too tight around my fingers (I used the same bind off I did for my shawl-found on Very Pink Knits).

I still have yarn remaining and decided to make a magic ball.

I had recently seen this video by Inside 23.

I love the scrappy granny blanket she is making from her magic ball, so I am totally copying her!

Have a great week!
