1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Is it expensive? on: October 24, 2010 05:08:41 PM
I'm thinking of having a go at knitting as a hobby that hopefully would have practical outcomes - that is, knitted accessories to wear.  Grin  Only thing is, right now money is really tight...  So, I'm wondering about the cost involved.  I'm guessing getting needles won't cost much so the expense comes down to the yarn.  I'd be happy to use synthetics so think that would help keep the cost down.  But, in the end, can it be cost-effective to make your own knits?  (If I'm going to start buying yarn all the time I might need to justify to DH how this works out cheaper than buying mass-produced knitted accessories  Embarrassed )
