Engaging children in needlework is a great way to keep them from being bored and occupy them for hours! It’s very cheap too, especially when comparing it to other activities which they may enjoy. Young children or teens won’t be able to work as fast and therefore one project will keep them busy for a while, thus saving you money.
Other smaller accessories that can be particularly useful when working on a knitting project are stitch markers, which can be used to mark particular points in a pattern that you are working on. These often come in the form of small rings which can simply be slipped onto your knitting needles as you knit.
Color Outside the Lines: I remember coloring books, and how careful I was to never get the crayon color outside the area I was coloring in or it would be ruined. Not so with knitting. Especially with scarf knitting. Because of all of the yarn choices we have, putting together beautifully color-crafted scarves is so easy. And so fun.
The blocking mat is another accessory that can be extremely helpful for the knitter or crocheter, or even for those who enjoy sewing and quilting. This mat serves for pinning the project to its surface, making it very easy to line up the project, keeping straight edges, hems and seams.
Bliss asks that to reduce their costs volunteer knitters help by sending items direct to their local unit, and not to Bliss. To find the address of your local unit, and to check which items they have requested to receive, please contact Bliss via their website.
