Tips for February

We have been so busy this past holiday season that I just have not had the time to add new tips.

Scizzors, tape measure, stitch holders, tapestry needle, stitch markers, highlighter tape

There are many gadgets available for knitting and many articles on the subject of what beginners need to get started, each with their own idea of what a knitter needs to have on-hand.  Knitting need not be an expensive hobby and I have found that for almost all of my projects I only need a few items.  I felt that I would share what I consider to be the most basic tools that every knitter should have in their bag of tricks: scissors, tape measure, stitch holders, tapestry needle, stitch markers, and highlighter tape.

Mary’s Yarn Nook carries all of these items  of course should you need to purchase them.

If you have more suggestions please feel free to let me know by email or post a comment here.

Save your pattern with your work

Always make a copy of your knit pattern and put it with your project.  By doing this if you take a break from working on that particular project, the pattern will be there when you resume.

We’ve Moved! — though not far

Hi everyone,

I wanted to let you know that we have moved our yarn shop to the first floor of the Village Quilt Shop (which is the same building that we were in).  We are now in the room to the right.  So yes we are there, just in a different spot.  Come visit!

Organized Knitting Needles

Organized NeedlesFor all your straight knitting needles, use small elastic bands to put the needles together by size.  This is great to do, especially if you have several different sizes in your knitting bag.  This way you will be sure not to pick up the wrong size needle to continue knitting your project.
