HELP! Quick Knitting Tips
You may have noticed I have neglected to post recently. I have been trying to continue on my scarf project (AFTER I recovered from my son tearing it off the needles) but knitting is sooooo slow for me. This is what happens every time I try to learn to knit, and this is where I usually give up for a few years until I decide to try again. Not this time! I swore I would keep going so I decided to scour the Internet for some quick knitting tips in hopes of upping my knitting speed. Here is what I’ve found so far:
Found at Joann’s I have GOT to get some of these!
Lion Brand Speed Stix 14” Knitting Needles – SIZE 50
SKU# CBG N 073683
Regular Price: $10.99
These size 50 knitting needles will make 3 to 4 strands of yarn fly through your fingers creating projects in a fraction of the usual stitching time. The bright red color of the needles lets you see your stitches easily and their light weight is easy on your hands.
- Size: 14 inches in length
- A free 4-yarn, 1 hour scarf pattern is included on the back of the package
This book promises to provide 9 fabulous patterns that can be done in 1-10 hours or less. Now THOSE sound like quick knitting projects to me! I might have to work on some quick easy projects just to get my self-esteem back up so I don’t feel so much like a failure. To get the needles AND book would be under $20 so it seems like it would definitely be a good investment for someone like me who has serious problems ever finishing a project. I will keep trekking on with my eyelash yarn scarf but I am definitely going to look into getting this book and the Speed Stix.
