When knitting a sweater, knit both sleeves at the same time, on
the same needles, using two skeins of yarn. After you have cast on
each sleeve, pin the sleeves together. Now, if you are
interrupted, you'll know which sleeve is to be knitted next.
For binding off your knitting, substitute your right hand needle
with a larger sized one. This gives a more relaxed casting off,
and there's no need to worry that the edging will draw up and look
Wooden needles will work better if you rub them with a soap filled
scouring pad before you start knitting.
When making a ribbed band in a color different from the main body
of the garment, eliminate an uneven look by picking up the first
row of stitches in the main color and then start your first rib
row with the contrasting color.
