Cowls: Now, here is a project that is hotter than hot. Cowls, aka mobius knitting is all the rage right now. And no wonder. These little beauties are attached at their ends when finished and they are also called Infinity scarves. Besides looking just terrific with any wardrobe, cowls are the best warmer-uppers on cold winter days. Easy to knit, they can be finished in a weekend.
Knitting has always been not only a fun hobby, but a very useful one as well. Through the years knitters have enjoyed creating all sorts of projects; everything from sweaters and afghans to knitted rugs and toys.
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.
One top brand that manufactures this accessory is Knit Pro, and this particular manufacturer supplies it chart keeper to retailers around the world, making it easy to get hold of. Knit Pro also has a number of other accessories that knitters might find useful, ranging from sock blockers to needle sizer.
Finally, one essential accessory to keep your equipment safe is a set of knitting needle caps, which are designed to be placed over the end of your needles when they are not in use. As mentioned above, needles can cause damage to bags that they are kept in, and can even prove a safety hazard, especially if they fall into the hands of children.
