Today I am writing about my passion: knitting

Why I love to knit and to wear it

Knitting with soft wool is a great way to make cozy, warm garments like sweaters, hats, scarves and mittens. Wool is a natural fiber, so it's breathable and warm even when wet. It's also extremely durable and has great elasticity, making it a great choice for all types of knitting projects. When purchasing wool for knitting, it's important to read the label carefully to make sure the wool is soft enough for your project. Some types of wool are quite coarse and may not be suitable for projects that require a softer touch. To get the most out of your soft wool, make sure to swatch a square of your chosen yarn to gauge the gauge of the fabric and make sure it is suitable for your project.

I increased the variety of wool in my shop

Knitting gets somone down to earth, new ideas come up and you hold something unique in your hands. You might as well surprise somebody with a knit sweater or jacket.

New to my shop are merino wool and mohair with cashmere.

Both are popular materials for knitting. Merino wool is a fine, soft wool that is lightweight and breathable. It is also durable and can be used for both knitwear and yarns for hand-knitting. Mohair is a long, silky fiber that is produced from the Angora goat. It is both lightweight and warm, making it an ideal material for garments, blankets, and accessories. It is also popular for lace knitting. Other types of yarns for knitting include cotton, alpaca, silk, and bamboo.

I love knitting

Knitting is an amazing hobby that is relaxing and enjoyable. It can be a great way to express yourself through creating handmade items like sweaters, hats, scarves, and more. There is a wide range of skills involved in knitting, from beginner stitches to more advanced techniques like cables, lace work, and color work. You can also make a variety of things from blankets, stuffed animals, and even home decor items. Knitting is also a great way to connect with others who share the same hobby.
