Who NOT to make gifts for
Your time and skills are valuable
Have you ever heard the word "knitworthy?" It's one of our favorite concepts and it doesn't just apply to knitting.
A knitworthy is a person who values the time and skills of the knitters in their life and shows it! They are always happy to receive handknit gifts, they wear and use the things we make them, and they show them off to others with obvious joy.
We think this applies to all crafts - weaving, crochet, woodworking, needlepoint, sewing, quilting... If you make a handmade gift for someone, you deserve to have your time and skills praised and shown off. It's okay to decide if the people on your gift list are craftworthy or not!
If you've made someone a gift (or you've seen others do so), and the recipient was blasé about it? Get them a storebought gift and save your crafting skills for a person who will appreciate it!*
*Little ones are exceptions, of course.

A marled yarn is one with multiple strands of different colors twisted or held together. When knitted, crocheted, or woven, these yarns produce a marbled effect.
In this book, Cecelia Campochiaro teaches how to create your own marled color effects to create different effects, including making your own gradient yarns. There's also discussion of yarn textures and weights and their effects when held together, and a large helping of color theory - all in a gorgeous book full of beautiful photos and inspiring projects.
See patterns from Making Marls on Ravelry or on the author's website.

The Tip Jar
Remember the rule - fancy yarns get simple textures, fancy textures get simple yarns.
If you do lace or cable patterns with busy or multicolored yarn, all your hard work creating those textures will be hidden by the yarn. Do cool textured work with simple, plain, smooth yarn and you'll be much happier with the final project.
