I really love needlework, I just love knitting, both with knitting and crocheting. But often there are questions: is it necessary to knit, if everything can be bought in the store? I often knit children’s clothes, they knit much faster, and it’s nice when my daughters wear unique and unique clothes.
And besides, I’m sure of the quality of the yarn from which things are knitted. I prefer natural materials: wool, cotton, never use pure acrylic.
What things are worth knitting?
I like that the connected thing will be individual, and you can decide for yourself what to tie, choose the color and pattern. What things are most relevant? In my opinion the easiest way to knit scarves, hats, light blouses. To make the thing look original, now there is a large selection of yarn with various fancy patterns.
Even a beginning needlewoman will be able to please her child with an original scarf, choosing the right yarn.
Besides things, I personally like to knit jewelry for my little princesses. Of course, they are still absolutely indifferent to beads, earrings and brooches, but you can decorate yourself with a hat or blouse for them in related colors, for example.
It seems to me that such things just can not buy in the store. And it’s nice when they ask on the street: You yourself tied up? Very beautiful!. I want to come home again, take the spokes in my hands and still do something original.
Related things cheaper?
Many people think that doing things yourself is much cheaper than buying in stores. I think this is a misconception. Of course, branded things you can not buy for a penny, but knitting is not a cheap hobby.
Although I do not knit out of a desire to save money, I just like the process itself. A lot of money to spend on a hobby. Quality yarn is not cheap, and I do not want to knit from cheap yarn for children.
True, now I have found a way to save. I buy yarn in joint purchases, immediately in large quantities. Now I have a part of the closet crammed with yarn, you can impose a lot of children’s things.
How to choose yarn for baby clothes?
Very many novice knitters ask this question. Many want to save money and buy cheap yarn. As a rule, acrylic is cheap. This is a deceptive economy, after washing acrylic can deform, become unpleasant to the touch, which means that the thing can be thrown away. Agree unpleasantly.
But not always expensive yarn will be of high quality. When buying, pay attention to the softness of the yarn, so that it is not barbed. Cotton, viscose and silk are perfect for summer clothes. For winter clothes, you can use wool, merino wool, alpaca wool.
And yet I would like to note once again that the main difference between a connected thing and a purchased thing is its individuality and originality. And when knitting, every mother puts a piece of her warmth and her love in every thing.
