2. Double Stranding: Combining Different Yarns in One Project
Double Stranding: Combining Different Yarns in One Project
I probably first started combining different yarns into projects when I developed the habit of buying yarn on clearance. Instead of thinking through projects that I could make, I went along the bins adding one skein of every type of yarn to my cart. At home, I'd end up with a storage box full of ...

3. Crafting with Lion Brand Yarns' Bonbons
Crafting with Lion Brand Yarns' Bonbons
Whether you knit, crochet, or craft with yarn, you are probably drawn to the colors and textures of yarn.

4. Health Benefits of Knitting and Crochet
Health Benefits of Knitting and Crochet
I enjoy the rhythmic repetition of knitting and crochet. With knitting, you get the added tapping of needle on needles while crochet is a stealthier activity with its single hook. I find knitting and crochet a soothing activity. Many times I'll work on a simple scarf or hat pattern as opposed to ...

5. Crafting with Ruffled Yarns
Crafting with Ruffled Yarns
How could anyone who knits or crochets not be excited the first time they saw ruffled yarns? Although the yarn looks more like a strip of fabric, once you got the hang of working with it, it was a lot of fun to create elaborately ruffled scarves using the most basic skills. But once you made a co...

6. Why You Want a Yarn Bowl
Why You Want a Yarn Bowl
I'd seen ceramic yarn bowls online and I thought that while owning one might be useful, I didn't really consider buying one. Then, my friend bought me one for my birthday and I "got it". I didn't just get a yarn bowl; I "got" or understood why I needed one. It wasn't just pretty, it actually had ...

7. Washcloth Origami
Washcloth Origami
Washcloth origami is the kissing cousin of napkin folding and the folded towel animals that sneak onto your bed when you leave your cruise ship cabin. Whether you make and give knit or crochet washcloths, are creating shower favors or a baby gift, or you want to add a fun touch to a guest bathroo...

How to Make and Wear a Knotted Scarf for Fall

Organizing Yarn, Knitting Supplies, and Crochet Supplies
I've painted with acrylics and watercolors. I've done an assortment of paper crafts. I've beaded, attempted to learn to sew, and done origami.

My wedding in October 2010 had many do-it-yourself elements for a few reasons: one was money; another was my love of crafting; and a third was, as a 45-year-old, first-time bride, some of the aspects of weddings seemed too fussy for my and my husband-to-be's personalities. Crafting my own weddin...

The 5 Knitting Supplies Every Beginning Knitter Needs
When I first learned to knit at age 7 or 8 all I had was a pair of size 10-1/2 knitting needles, scissors, and some scraps of yarn - the things my mother had given to me from her own supplies.

Easy Way to Make Pom Poms
For a long time, if I wanted to make a pompom, I'd use the directions of wrapping a lot of yarn around a book, or CD case, or even some sturdy cardboard.
