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.
Yarn: Premature babies have very delicate skin and can often be allergic to wool; therefore it is best to steer clear of garments made with a wool mix. Acrylic yarn is more appropriate when knitting for preemies. Ideal yarn to use for preemie knits is baby double knit or 4ply yarn. Most preemie patterns will use these.
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.
Many specialist knitting bags are also designed to specifically cater to knitters, with inner linings that are tough enough to resist damage from knitting needles or scissors being kept inside. Popular brands of knitting bags include methane, Namaste and Bergere de France, but there is a huge range of stylish and practical designs on the market from many different manufacturers.
One of the most popular and versatile of knitting projects is scarf knitting. Once thought of as a beginner’s jump-off point, scarf knitting has carved a creative and beautiful niche for itself. You could knit scarves all day every day, and never come to the end of ideas.
