Knitting is indeed an interesting craft that involves two long needles and a yarn or a wool thread. The long and slender needles, made up of plastic or steel, are used to turn the loops of yarn or wool into wearable clothes. Garments of various shapes and sizes are created by interlocking these loops. A wide variety of garments and other materials such as sweaters, mittens, socks, gloves, quilts, mufflers, blankets and even bedroom slippers can be prepared by knitting. Different methods are used to knit different items. If you wish to learn how to knit pullovers, you will have to learn a particular pattern of knitting.
Those who know how to knit and have perfected their craft can make attractive gifts for their family members and friends. Giving a machine made socks over a hand knitted pair will seem boring and very cold gestured simply because the hand knitted air of socks will make the wearer remember the love and effort of the maker every time they are worn. Some traditional communities have the tradition of expectant mothers knitting baby clothes for the soon-arriving new born baby.
