Knitting in the round is the technique to create some seamless projects. Imagine socks, hats, leg warmers and so much more. The options for us knitters are - circular needles (fixed or interchangeable) in a length of 10 - 47" according to the project or a set of double pointed needles of 6 - 8".
With the holiday season swiftly approaching you might be in a panic to get gifts for all your loved ones. As a knitter, the most obvious gift would be your hand-knit delights. Now, with time running short you need not go in search of knitting patterns and get supplies.
Portuguese knitting is one of the oldest forms of the yarn-craft that require just your regular knitting needles and yarn. The unique knitting style was not even born in Portugal but came from the Persian world, where knitting was invented around 700 CE.
A knitting project is not finished when it's off the knitting needles, it is truly complete when all yarn ends are weaved in and hidden from plain sight. Weaving in yarn ends serves two purposes - keeping the stitches from unraveling and for your knitted fabric to be smooth and neat.
