Knit
When I moved to California from Brazil for my husband's job, I knew there would be challenges. But I never imagined that the answer to many of them would come from a pair of needles.

What do you do with your "me time" when your creative energy is zapped? If you’re a total hobby-head like me, you fill that time with hobbies that don’t require creativity. For me, it was fitness.
Did you know that your first project might just reveal clues about your knitting personality? And what if you haven't picked your first project yet? (Hi, new knitters! Welcome!) We've got some insights for you, too.

We've all been there: you finally find the perfect pattern, and want recreate the project right on down to the exact yarn shown. But then tragedy strikes: the yarn is out of stock (or prohibitively expensive). Don't worry! You can still make your knit dream come true. It's just a matter of knowing how to make a smart swap.

Hooray! You finished that sweater. But don't throw it on just yet ... block it first to help it retain its shape as you wear it. (You don't want to end up with droopy sleeves or curled up hems later on!)

Dyeing your own yarn can literally change everything. Instead of hunting for the perfect shade, you can create it with your own two hands. Pretty amazing, right? But before you go all color crazy, there are a few things you should know.

Ah, wool: so versatile, so warm, so...itchy? Sure, itchy wool can happen, but don't let one or two bad experiences turn you against this cozy fiber forever. A little knowledge can help.

The bigger the needle, the better, right? Not so fast ... Every needle size (and type) has its purpose. And not only that, once you narrow down the size, there's the material and type to consider, too. With so many choices, it can be really hard to decode which needles to use for each project. Consider this your cheat sheet!

Not even super-busy celebs can say no to knitting. These stars have been known to pick up their needles on set, and a few have even spread their love of knitting to their co-stars.
