Knitting Tips for my new market

I started developing knitting kits a few months ago, my own unique knitting patterns alongside Stylecraft yarns
 The Feminine Touch Knitting Kits

All packaged up, ready to send out immediately. I was amazed at the response over the Christmas period and beyond (yes they are selling well , now into January). 

I came to the conclusion that my target market is shifting slightly; away from those that love receiving well knitted, high quality knitted items from me, to those that want to reproduce those very same items or who want to give others the chance to recreate them. 

On Facebook ,you might have seen me change direction too, as knitting tips and exciting free patterns flow into my activity feed, I pass these on with a quick share, so my followers can learn and improve their knitting skills and can pass the knowledge on too. 

A friend of mine, said how much she enjoyed these tips that I was passing on and could I write some myself, she especially wanted some information on seaming.

 Well , yes of course I could but........... I think there is so much high quality information out there on the Internet that it seemed a shame to be wasting my valuable creative time re-writing something that had been written before. 

Yes , if I develop a new technique, a new way of doing something, then you will be the first to know!

In the meantime, why don't you take a look at my "knitting tips" page. This page I keep bookmarked so I can keep coming back to it. It's where I keep links to all the useful information I come across. It covers both knitting and designing. So take a peek, bookmark it yourself if you find it useful. 

And, here are some tips from Craftsy, a really useful 18 page document full of all those knitting stitches you need to know (just click on the photo above to get your free download).
