26 Not 25 ways to become a better knitter!

Well – hello – again!  It’s been a while!

Today, I am awaiting the birth of my 3rd grandchild and thinking about knitting.  Knitting is my nemesis!  I just don’t think I will ever have the concentration it takes to follow a knitting pattern.  Problem is …. I LOVE it!  It’s portable!  It’s compact!  It feels good in your hand.  Now, if someone could just tell me how to follow a “cable” pattern.  Maybe… I will feel like a real knitter!

Here’s my latest project…  I have conquered washcloths.  I have made a dozen or so chemo caps for the MD Anderson Cancer Center hat cart so I decided a baby hat was next.  I am good at circular needles but what’s up with knitting with 5 double pointed needles.  It took some getting use to!

So, here’s a great blog I found that talks about the 25 knitting tips that will make anyone a better knitter.  I totally agree with all 25 however, I think that she missed a very important tip.

YOU NEED GREAT LIGHTING!  YES-IT’S IMPORTANT!

Check out her tips and come back and check out our products!  We will be at Vogue Knitting Live in Las Vegas on March 24-26, 2017

  1. I could not make anything without my Stella lamp – it is totally responsible for my success. I could not work with black, navy, even red without Stella. I love that I can choose exactly the right light and amount of light for each project, and do it any time of day or night, bright or cloudy – perfect light is always there waiting to be turned on! I would like a Stella lamp in every room – more than one in the living room. I would like more styles though 🙂
