[Ravelry FO] Door handle socks/mitts


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!
