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.
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.
Bonnie Babies: This charity sends premature baby outfits and blankets to special care baby units around the UK and to parents who need support. A mother who needed a way to deal with the loss of her premature child founded Bonnie Babies six years ago. Bonnie Babies makes premature clothing, blankets, and burial outfits for U.K. Special Baby Care Units and families. Their aim is to show each mother and family that there are people thinking of them and caring for them.
Eyelash Yarn: This very popular yarn is a novelty yarn, one which is used either in conjunction with other yarns, or as an accessory to top off a knitting project with something special. The thread base which it is composed of, can be metallic, matte, or a combination of these. When you knit with eyelash yarn only, your project will take on a fuzzy appearance, very soft to the touch. You can make children’s scarves with eyelash yarn, and kids love the soft feel and texture and colors of this very unique yarn.
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.
