    Get help with a personal accident claim in Anglesey


    A great lawyer for a personal accident claim in Anglesey

    Knitting is a hobby that has recently gained popularity among certain circles. It has never really gone away, with crafters keen to create their own jumpers and scarves in different kind of wools and colours that they choose.

    Yarn bombing, which is the practice of knitting signs or alterations to, for example, a normal urban street, has made it cool. Yarn bombing pranks include things like knitting a cover for a bench or streetlight, or hanging giant knitted spiders from a fence, or thousands of knitted penguins appearing overnight in a public square.

    It’s completely pointless really, but it makes people laugh.

    Knit practical items too

    You don’t have to knit crazy stuff, you could do something useful like a hat or scarf. Jumpers and cardigans are good if you want something bigger to get your teeth into.

    If you have a specialist wool shop near by, they’ll be able to give you some advice. They can tell you whether you’ll need four ply or double knitting yarn, bamboo needles or steel ones. They can tell you about circular needles, double pointed needles and crochet hooks, and give some suggestions about what size you’ll need.

    A local knitting shop also has groups and workshops you can join, so that you can knit in company.

    You can also join a knitting group, which sometimes meet in a pub or coffee shop, so that you can discuss new stitches, get help on tricky bits, or just gossip about things that have nothing to do with wool or knitting!

    Knit safely

    With knitting, safety points are about being careful that the wool doesn’t get wrapped around wrists or fingers, cutting off circulation and causing numbness.

    You should be careful that you’re not allergic to wool, and don’t get rashes or skin problems on your hands. You should be careful with your needles, storing them properly so that nobody accidently gets stabbed if they poke through your bag as you’re carrying them. And you should also be carefully that wooden or bamboo needles don’t split, causing dangerous splinters or lacerations.

    Very old needles or crochet hooks can be small, sharp and rusty, so don’t get them under your fingernails or you might need a tetanus jab.

    Be aware that knitting needs a bit of elbow room, so don’t try and get it out on a crowded train or bus, or you might accidentally jab someone with your elbow or poke them with your needle.
