Useful Knitting Tips

Tips I can vouch for:

  • Staci Perry ( has a great video showing how to alternating skeins when using hand-dyed yarn.  She demos both flat and in the round.  Almost every time I need to learn a new technique or need a refresher, I check Staci’s YouTube channel first.
  • What to do with that last fiddly stitch when binding off.  acengineeredknits
  • Judi’s Magic Cast on video – thanks to Cat Bordhi
  • Lisa Stockebrand’s Knitting backwards video.  It shows how to do it without twisting your stitches.  I searched all over the place for this because most videos demo a technique where you end up with twisted stitches.
  • My go-to sock heel – the Fish Lips Kiss heel by Sox Therapist.  Worth much more than the $1 you’ll pay.  PattyJoy has a new heel coming out soon and I can’t wait to try it out.

I haven’t tried these but want to share them anyhow:
