Quick(ish) items

Presenting a couple of items which have been my knit-these-if-you-have-no-inspiration-to-knit-anything-else projects. Theoretically quick(ish), but slow in my manner.

legwarmers for kid

Legwarmers (Ravelry link) of Novita Polku, needles 3 mm. Simple legwarmers with k2,p1 ribbing.

The legwarmers are nice and soft, but the yarn is no pleasure to knit. Well, been there, tried that. Used 55 grams of yarn for these legwarmers, so I have almost half a skein to use up (plus another skein of different colourway).

baktus in wine

I have knitted one Baktus scarf before (my first Baktus). It was an easy and fun project to use up random balls of yarn, so I decided to do it again.

I had a 50-gram ball plus scraps of an old Novita Bella yarn (50% acrylic, 50% wool). It turned into a nice small scarf (Ravelry link).

Needle 5 mm, used moss stitch instead of garter stitch, 57 grams altogether.

I thought I knitted this Baktus for me, but there were many of those who volunteered to take this one into a good use. We’ll see who ends up wearing it in a few months.

Coming up next: a streight flush in pink pullovers.
