[Ravelry FO] Door handle socks/mitts

Untitled

The door handles in this house are brass coloured metal and pretty sharp – I am always catching myself on them and/or bruising my forearms by bashing into them as I try to walk past – I have multiple sclerosis and ataxia / clumsiness is a major problem / symptom for me.

I was going to buy rounded doorknobs to replace the handles because I rarely actually close any of the doors but mum suggested putting a padded cover on the handles instead.

I have dug out some leftover teal DK yarn and am going to use that. I will probably run a length of shirring elastic around the open end.

Go go gadget knitting designer!

Thank you! They solve the almost-sharp problem but I have still ended up with a bruise on my forearm at the height off the floor of the door handle. I need to think of a way to stuff the handle-socks or something. Hmmm I might just try stuffing the ends.

*designs as she types*

*stuffs a cotton wool ball into the end of the sock and puts it back on the door handle*

;-p

Simple solutions are the best (when they work)! :)
