So I bought myself a cute cute fairisle knitted scarf from a charity shop for 50p. I imagined myself looking all GAP Kids and No-Efforts-Chic in my new accessory. Anyway, it was a bit musty so I chucked it in the washing machine. Big Mistake – poor scarf shrank and turned to felt… I was sad. But then I remembered all those great felted-jumper patterns on Pinterest and realised the opportunities! Cue some nice scissor and sewing time and VOILA we have The String of Tiny Christmas Fairisle Mittens (snappy, I know).
I have strung it up over my knitting books (and underneath Husband’s ludicrous board-game stash shelf).
