Impromptu Mitts

I needed a simple travel project at short notice, so headed to my stash and looked for inspiration.

I found it in the form of a 50g ball of Drops Fabel, a variegated 4 ply in a range of blues and greens, a lovely present from a thoughtful friend a couple of months ago.

Teamed with a 50g ball of Patons Diploma Gold 4 ply in cream, I planned to use a crafty little technique to maximise the colour effect while also speeding up the knitting time … using the yarn held double on 4.5 mm needles … And here’s the result!


I can recommend the technique – it’s my tip of the day!

Have you made any impromptu projects recently? I’d love to hear about them!
