Day 29: Do you have any tips, or things that you’ve learned from knitting?

1. Don’t be afraid. It’s just sticks and some string. (Sometimes you have to chant that over and over.)
2. Steeking still scares me. Hopefully I’ll get around to trying it on those mug cosies. Until THAT happens- no amount of chanting will get me around the fear of it ALL unraveling.
3. While all you REALLY need are sticks and string- having a pair of scissors (or something to cut yarn with) and a tape measure is highly useful
4. Always carry an extra set of needles and extra yarn. Whether it’s just in case you accidentally break the ones you’re using, or just in case you find a pattern you absolutely NEED to cast-on RIGHT NOW- having backups help.
