Anyone can go into a store and buy a ready made gift for another. It is when an individual is someone that matters a great deal that warrants having a personalized gift; maybe even a one of a kind for them. That is when the 'Art of Knitting' is appreciated because there are so many ways to personalize the knitted item uniquely.

If a specific color is needing to be purchased, knitting yarn can be found in any color in the rainbow and can be chosen in any hue of the colors. That is because the hand dyed yarn allows the manufacturers to dye the yarns to be lighter or darker. If you need to decide just exactly what you would like to knit, there are knitting patterns available for lots of various items. The knitting patterns will suggest the best knit yarn fiber to be used to knit the item. The hand dyed yarn makes it possible to mix colors on the thread to make a multicolored knitted item.

Then depending on the store you visit to make your knitting yarn purchase, there will be a big variety to choose from. Color is the first choice, then the fiber. Yarn manufacturers are coming up with all kinds of different yarns. Those yarns that are intertwined with silver or gold threads, beads or sparkling gems give an awesome, stunning look to your finished project. Yarn doesn't have to be made from cotton, the yarn can be made from silk, wool, thin plastic and a seemingly endless list of other materials. The more unique, the more interesting the hand dyed yarn is.

Using the knitting patterns as the guide, follow the detailed intertwining of the yarn threads to hand make a personalized gift. Knitting is a remarkable talent, and individuals love it when they receive a gift from someone that was so thoughtful. These gifts personalized just for them, makes it so loved and appreciated. Many of these items become heirlooms and are passed down through the family for generations. Eventually the items can be worth thousands at antique auctions, that is if the person the item is hand down to, decides to part with it.

'Something Special' is exactly what a personalized gift will be to the recipient. For sentimental reasons, the recipient and descendants may never want to part with the item. The gift can be enjoyed for centuries and become a 'Treasure' to the one that owns it. A treasure is the 'most prized possession' of an individual.

When choosing to knit something special as a gift for another, it is a show of love, kindness and thoughtfulness. Anyone can buy something from a store; even knitted things can be machine manufactured. It is those gifts that are hand knitted that matter the most.
