An Eclectic Collection of Knitting Techniques and Projects

Do you enjoy learning different knitting techniques and trying new tools? My knitting projects reflect my enjoyment of the entire process of knitting, from pattern design to yarn selection to finishing off. For example, the tree design above was knit simply to try out the intarsia knitting and duplicate stitch embroidery techniques. Even if the results of my first attempts are less than perfect, the scarf this tree adorns will still keep somebody warm this winter. Knitting allows you to make mistakes that are still useful!

Look through my photo album and see if there is a new technique you'd like to learn. I've included some of my favorite knitting books to help you with projects and techniques. For more inspiration, join Ravelry and network with knitters all over the world who share their projects, pictures, and patterns.

All the photos in this hub are my own. (I'm a much better knitter than photographer!)

Christmas Stockings in Fair Isle

I knit this design from a pattern in Love of Knitting magazine, winter 2011 issue. Since I knit both English and Continental, I simply held one color in each hand. If you knit like this, be sure to always hold the same color in the same hand--otherwise your stitches may be uneven, since most of us don't knit with the same tension in right and left hands.

After completing this stocking, I made another with the main color and accent color reversed. This way I used the leftover yarn to best advantage. Fair Isle projects can be great stash busters; use those small amounts left over from past projects. Just be sure to only combine yarns of similar weight and washability.

A Simple Lace Pattern

Knitted Lace

Scarves are a Good Start

I have found the best way to try out a new lace knitting pattern is to make a small scarf. Lace has so many open spaces that a single skein of yarn can go a long way! The scarf shown here was knit in the "faggot stitch" pattern using a kitten-soft, bamboo-blend yarn.

This Naturally Spa yarn from Caron was so soft I actually caught myself stroking it in the craft store--as if it were a kitten! Bamboo is a renewable resource, too, so I feel good using this material for my lace projects.

Process or Project Knitter?

Some knitters enjoy the process of knitting, even if they are knitting for no particular reason. Other knitters simply want to produce knitted items as efficiently as possible. Which are you?

      I love knitting anything magic loop style. No more double pointed needles for me! I found a pattern for Christmas tree mini-sweater-ornaments. The patterns calls for DPN but I just did it on a long circular needle...it's so much more enjoyable! And those teeny-tiny sweaters are adorable!

      @MariaMontgomery: Bamboo is nice for summer socks--light and breathable.

      I still haven't tried knitting socks, but I'm planning to start soon. Probably when the weather gets cooler. I seem to knit more in the cooler months than in summer. I have used the bamboo yarn, too. It is so-o-o-o soft. I love the feel of it.

      My grandmother used to knit us socks and they were a little rough but boy were they warm. One year she made us all toe socks. The knitted lace scarf image looks very nice! Appreciate you sharing your projects, Ms Kim!
