These candy-colored twists are just the thing to brighten your day, and they’re calorie free, too! Knit in the round and stuffed with fiber, they’re a visual treat. One 45 yard mini-skein will yield 3-4 candies, but why stop at one color? These are also a fun way to use up leftover sock yarn.

Add a bit of lavender inside your stuffing, and make sweet sachets. Or add catnip for a cat toy, if you dare. (I’m not sure I want to encourage my cat to chew knitted objects, but it’s knitter’s choice.)
