If you take a few precautions beforehand, you can take along some suitable knitting to enjoy. If you are going abroad, don't take two packs of Aran weight yarn or the pieces of a jumper that is almost finished. It all takes up too much space. Take along a small piece of work - perhaps some baby clothes. You could even make them in 4-ply in a lace pattern, which will slow you down and add some interest for you. more follows > Home File Index 480 What's New 481 Sewing Your Money Time Off Adverts

Don't forget to pack sufficient yarn to complete what you are making. Remember to take the needles required for welts and bands and don't forget to take the pattern instructions. You will probably be working outdoors, perhaps on a windy beach, so take some polythene bags to put your yarn in. Have you tried knitting back and forth on a circular needle? It really does take up less space than conventional pairs of needles. Keep the stitches on with a stitch stopper. more follows > Home File Index 480 What's New 481 Sewing Your Money Time Off Adverts

You are away from home and not surrounded by well meaning friends offering advice when all is not going well and besides, holiday time is a time to treat yourself. How about taking a 50g ball of Twilleys crochet cotton and a hook and learning how to crochet. After a week you would come back expert, with a nice collection of table mats. Take a library book of knitted collars and edgings and knit some fine lace edging suitable for use on a favourite jumper or one you plan to knit later. > Home File Index 480 What's New 481 Sewing Your Money Time Off Adverts

Knitting is very universal so most places have them If you are on the Continent, you may see fashions and styles before they come to the UK. I remember seeing surface decoration of jumpers and knitting with ribbon well before it came to the UK. Take along your work to show them and perhaps buy yourself something very local, even if it is only a ball of nice yarn. You can always knit it into a square or a simple sample as a reminder of your holiday. more > Home File Index 480 What's New 481 Sewing Your Money Time Off Adverts
