You can knit with leftovers very easily
When you finish knitting an item you might be left with 10g or 15g of yarn from a 50g or 100g ball. That's not even one ounce, how much use is that going to be?
You'd be surprised!
This week's video is showing you how I roll left-over yarn into a ball. And all that yarn that I rolled up on camera, I have actually used since!
One of them I used to make a pom-pom and the others have gone into stripey hats. They are so useful, and once they're wound neatly into a centre-pull ball, the yarn is so much easier to use.
So where to start? You can start with the bare minimum of items. Nothing but your hands and the yarn. I then also go on to using a couple of props- which I'll show you in the video.
It might feel a bit tricky to start with, but believe me, it is addictive! I now have an obsessive need to wind yarn into a ball whenever it's leftover from knitting a project.

You will learn the next-step knitting knowledge that will make knitting larger items and being more creative with your knitting easier. You'll see fewer mistakes too.
A lot of the time it may not be the pattern or the yarn that put the brakes on your knitting, it could the way that you approached them. To combat these things in my knitting journey, I learned as much as I could about substituting yarn, about using different tools for different projects and supporting myself with fewer WIPS on the go at once.
You'll surprise yourself at how quickly your knitting changes, just from shifting a few choices as you knit.
