Most sock knitters have strong feelings about how they get the job done. If you're one of them, you're probably decisive about cuff-down vs. toe-up, and you've figured out a way to perfectly graft those toes. We're not about to mess with all that! But...sometimes trying a new technique, like the magic loop method, can revolutionize the way you knit socks. Just sayin'.

Shawls may just be the perfect project. There are endless ways to knit them (top down, bottom up, side to side, and so on), they’re great for all seasons (think air conditioning protection in the summer, and cozy blanket wrap in the winter), and our favorite part: you don’t have to worry about fit. Sold? We thought so.

Jeans can be such a conundrum. We want them to fit snugly all over, but too often they fit just right in the hips and legs, only to gape at the waist. Luckily, there is a solution — and it doesn't involve a belt. (Though knowing how to DIY belt loops isn't such a bad idea.)

Nothing kills the look of a great pair of denim like fabric pooling at the ankle. And hemming the jeans — only to lose that original cool, worn edge — hurts our souls just a smidge. That's why we dug deep to find a solution that doesn't require going to the tailor. The secret: moving the original hem up higher, and making it look like it was always there.

Everyone has that defining get-ready-in-the-morning moment: the one where you look at your closet, see an array of options and still feel like you have nothing to wear.
