Knitting Diaries

As a novice knitter, it is valid to weigh your financial options well in advance. Since it is highly likely that you will pursue knitting for a prolonged period of your life, you want to make sure that knitting can be affordable while being productive at the same time.

Especially in the beginning stages of your journey, knitting can be all fun. You will probably even waste a lot of yarn or buy in excess. For a learning curve, all that can be normal. But as you evolve, it is important to think about whether you can sustain knitting as a constant hobby throughout your life.

For the most part, knitting is highly cost effective. Generally, the tools and needles you need, can be found at any local store at just a couple of hundred bucks and potentially lasts for a lifetime. At Vardhman, you always have the convenience of ordering the highest quality yarn at affordable prices. At any given point of time, regardless of the size of your project, your entire costs should stay well within 500-700 rupees.

Also make a note that expenses are always subjective. Depending on the type of yarn you choose, your projects may cost significantly higher than retail purchases. For example, you will most often find that knitting high end merinos can be costlier than purchasing them outright. This is because you can generally make a higher quality product from merino yarn than what you can buy at a store. You could make the perfect fit with ideal colours, yarn weight and patterns that can be worn in pride.

In the end, knitting your own products like scarves, hats, blankets, sweaters and more can be much more economical compared to retail shopping because the costs of production are removed and you also save up on service taxes. At the same time, you have the luxury of creating combinations and textures of your own. You get to unleash your creativity and the satisfaction of having created something with your own hands.
