Machine knitting can be a wonderful and fulfilling hobby,
but it's easy to get stuck in a rut

We can help you out of the rut.

If you've been machine knitting for a while but still consider yourself a beginner, don't worry - you're not alone.

Many people who have been knitting for years feel like they haven't progressed much beyond the basics.

The good news is that there are plenty of ways to push past the beginner stage and unlock your full knitting potential.

Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Learn new techniques
    There are always new knitting techniques to learn, no matter how experienced you are. Take a class, watch Knit it Now tutorials, or take a Knit it Now Course to expand your knowledge. |

  • Challenge yourself with new projects
    Don't be afraid to tackle projects that are outside your comfort zone. Choose patterns that incorporate new techniques or require more advanced skills, and don't worry if it takes you a bit longer to complete them. | |

  • Experiment with different yarns and fibers
    Trying out new yarns and fibers can give you a fresh perspective on your knitting. It can also be a great way to learn more about how different fibers behave and what types of projects they're best suited for.

  • Join a knitting group or community
    Being part of a knitting group can provide inspiration, encouragement, and valuable feedback. You'll also have the opportunity to learn from more experienced knitters and share your own knowledge with others.

  • Take on a knitting challenge
    Set yourself a goal, like completing a complicated pattern or knitting a certain number of items in a month. Having a specific challenge to work towards can help motivate you and push you to improve your skills.

P.S Forgot: 100 hats for charity since Christmas.

YES. Life intervened, so I signed up with Knit-It-Now to find simple patterns to make close to 60 gifts for Christmas this past year. Here's what I've done since: 62 scarves for charity, 65 dishcloths for charity, 28 lightweight lacy bathing suit tops for relatives in the South, and 28 3 or 4 ply sports weight vests for relatives in the North (same patterns!) I have 2 more lacy tops in the works that I wasn't able to finish in time. Except for the last two, all were given away in haste, so no pics, but I'll try to send those at some time. Sue has been a wonderful help in the process. Also, I've tried a number of knitting techniques including stripes in the round and knitting braid for trim and attaching it as I knit.

I'll add: I'm in my 80's, and still work. It IS possible with simple patterns.
