Often I find when I knit something from a pattern that I have a lot of left over yarn and I end up with a small collection of odds and ends that I can't quite do anything with! Fortunately (or unfortunately I thought at the time!) I had around 1 and a half skeins left over when I knitted a cape and scarf set earlier in the year which was a nice amount to do something with. I'm going to be fairly easy to spot in the winter as I'll be almost head to foot in mustard! I knitted myself a hat and some mittens to match my cape!
