You love to knit and crochet and give the things you make as gifts. At this point, everyone in your life has one of your blankets, sweaters, or hats. Your family and friends. Your UPS guy. Your neighbor. Your neighbor's baby. Your other neighbor's baby.

There's a reason why scarves are a fave first-time weaving project. Making a long, narrow cloth rectangle seems pretty doable. Plus, the end result is something gorgeous you can wear yourself or give away as a gift. What's not to like?

We’re all heart eyes all the time for the woven art trend … especially when it comes in a form we can wear! That’s why we absolutely love this necklace from Jo Gick, crafter extraordinaire and contestant on season 1 of NBC’s Making It. Bonus: You don’t even need a loom to weave it up!

Aran? Worsted? Fingering? Figuring out yarn weights can feel like learning a whole new language. You can thank the Craft Yarn Council for that: they're the folks who determine how yarns are categorized and labeled.

Roving, rolags, batts. Wait, what language are we speaking? Ah yes, the language of spinning fibers.
