Knitting Daily: 3 Tips for a More Productive Hobby

Knitting daily can be a frustrating hobby. It’s likely you’ll make at least a dozen mistakes before you finish a project. It might take long (several weekends) before you get something done. Yes, a hobby should be free from “deadlines.” However, it will be more motivating if you’re always seeing something from your efforts (in as efficient way as possible).

That’s why in this short article, we’ll provide you with quick tips you can apply today (or as soon as possible). This way, you can finish more projects and make the hobby a more enjoyable one. Let’s start.

1. Use the right type of yarn

The right type of yarn can make a huge difference to your daily knitting. For example, wool yarn are much more flexible (less hand strain) than most other types of yarn. Even when you’re tackling a large project (e.g. adult sweater), you can still enjoy the hobby.

Many experienced hobbyists even use bamboo needles for more comfort. These needles are softer to the hand. These are also ideal during winter because bamboo needles provide extra warmth.

2. Listen to relaxing music

Knitting can be repetitive and boring. But how can hobbyists endure that and still remain enthusiastic about their craft?

Maybe the key is the activities they do aside from knitting. Perhaps they’re listening to their favourite music (this reinforces the fun part of knitting). Or maybe they do aromatherapy (soothing scent) to relax while knitting.

3. Go back to basics - attend classes

One insight can change the way you do knitting. And you might learn that from attending classes and courses. You might learn that from the instructor or fellow hobbyists.

It’s also good to go back to the basics (such as reading patterns, choosing a type of yarn). This way, you’ll know the best practices. You might also learn what you’ve been missing that can make your knitting a much more productive one.
