Knitting items for premature babies can be very worthwhile and rewarding. It is definitely appreciated by the charities and the families who receive them. If you are excited by the prospect of getting your knitting needles working for charity and want to explore charity knitting for other organisations here are some other ideas to help your search.
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.
The charities have a lot of information on their websites, below is some general advice to help you get those needles clicking.
DIY: Because there are so many different and unique yarns to knit with, I always enjoy putting together my own original knitting projects. If you visit your local yarn shop aka LYS, you will find so many options for scarf knitting that the ideas will seem never-ending. And that’s a good thing. Because once you’re done with one scarf, you can start another and it will look entirely different. Gone are the days of boring garter stitch scarf looks. Just combine a snazzy yarn in a spectacular color and everyone you know will want one of their own.
f you enjoy any sort of needlework; most likely your children will be eager to pick up the hobby as well. Whether it be crocheting, knitting, sewing, embroidery, cross-stitching, or any other type of needlework, they will want to learn too.
