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.
Whether you are nutty about knitting or an eager novice with your needles paused there are lots of charities to choose from. Knitting for charity can definitely be fun, but it can also be one of the most fulfilling and rewarding things you’ll ever do.
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.
Engaging children in needlework is a great way to keep them from being bored and occupy them for hours! It’s very cheap too, especially when comparing it to other activities which they may enjoy. Young children or teens won’t be able to work as fast and therefore one project will keep them busy for a while, thus saving you money.
