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.
Bliss: One of the many ways that you can support Bliss is by knitting for babies in special care units. Knitted items are most helpful for babies about to go home, but there is also a need for blankets and hats for babies in hospital. Knitted items are often not suitable for intensive care units – stitched cotton is preferable. However for larger babies, and in high dependency and special care units, knitted items are often very welcome.
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.
Other types of stitch markers on the market today can be clipped onto you project when needed, and then clipped as required. These allow the individual who is working on the pattern to come back to a certain place in the design later in the project, leading to a great deal of precision in the creation of the project.
