Garn Studio allows the visitor to print free patterns in eleven different languages. There’s even a link for American English patterns and British English patterns. You’ll find many crochet and knitting patterns for children and babies: hats, sweaters, blankets. You’ll also see links for their yarn on the Knitntyme.com site at discounted prices, however, you can use your own yarn.
Bliss also use Knitted breasts. The knitted breasts allow nurses to easily demonstrate to women important massage techniques that let them stimulate their milk production and express their valuable first drops of milk. They are particularly helpful when there are language barriers. Woollen breasts are a brilliant free alternative to expensive teaching aids that are used by health professionals to educate new mothers to express by hand before going on to use an electric pump.
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.
Another very practical item to invest is a chart keeper, which is tool that can be used to keep and display patterns and charts, all whilst working on a particular project. The chart keeper can be opened out and stood up to place patterns in for easy reference when working on a project, and then folded up and stored away when not in use.
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.
