Tip of the Day

Here is an archive of the Tip of the Day:

April 14
Use the proper length of needles to have a more pleasurable experience when knitting. For example, for sock knitting use 5" double pointed needles. Check out the lengths at Brittany

April 17
When following a chart, use a large post-it note to mark the row you are on. It doubles as a place to jot down notes as well.

April 19

Always use the yarn end from inside the ball. It is easy to get hold of if you are careful, and stops the ball rolling about when you pull it out. This prevents the yarn getting twisted/untwisted and getting dirty.

April 21
Measure, measure and measure when pieces for a quilt top. At EVERY step measure what you have done so far and make sure it is on track.

April 26
When knitting a pattern out of a book or magazine, make a photocopy so it's easier to transport and saves the book or mag from weathering.
