It took me a long while, but I eventually learned to never say never. Things can change. Or at the very least, if a person isn't opening her narrow mind to the infinity of possibilities, she can rephrase her sentiments. For example, a knitter who would once emphatically proclaim: "I would never knit socks" might instead say something like, "I'm not really a sock knitter", thereby introducing the possibility, if not the probability that sock knitting might happen in her life. Likewise, another knitter might have spent the last decade firmly entrenched in the belief that project monogamy was essential to that project's completion and also that any other path led straight into the abyss of eternal startitis. Yet the turn of the new year has that knitter toying with the idea of starting all the projects all at once just to test the validity of that theory, because, hey, why not?
Formerly something that was considered to be defective, slub yarn is far more popular today. Knitters love that it can be used to create garments and home interiors with real personality. Garter, stocking, rib and moss stitch all work fine and show up quite well when knitted in these lumpy fibres. Would you like to get experimental with your needles? We have two fantastic patterns for ladies — available to download now — that look great worked in slub yarn.
Ready to change colors in your knitting project, but you're not sure how? The process is easy and one that every knitter needs to know. Knitting stripes is the easiest way for knitters to add their own touch to a project and to add a bit of color to what would otherwise be a plain knit fabric.
