The Houses pattern is nearing completion, so I thought I’d show you the little gift that will come with it. Printable pictures you can use as gift tags or for your own records. Just like the birdy labels I posted earlier, they have garment care symbols that you can fill in yourself.

The new website is also coming along, slowly and quietly like the snow, and a very cold summerhouse has decided my next project for me. Wait and see!

Educating Non-Knitters on Garment Care

please look after this yarn

I noticed that a discussion on the Ravelry forums linked to the garment labels I posted yesterday. The question is “how do you educate non-knitters you knit for, to care for their garment?” Especially with the Christmas season coming up, this seems like an important problem to try to resolve. Sewing in a fabric label, such as those found in shop-bought clothes, seems an ideal solution because people are accustomed to consulting them, and they are always available for quick reference on the garment itself. But this is clearly not an option for smaller knitted items such as socks and gloves, and may not be feasible on lacy pieces where they would show through. In these cases it would be necessary to provide the instructions separately.

So where would the recipient be most likely to keep the instructions?

Garment Care Labels

I designed these images so that they can be used as gift tags, labels or even for record-keeping for knitted (or other handmade) projects. You can fill in the symbols by hand after you print them out. Check out this site or google ‘garment care symbols’ to see a list of symbols and their meanings. Fill in the pylon lines with a message to your recipient or with project details.

The PDF file contains one large label and two small ones. Please let me know if you encounter any problems, and especially if you enjoy using them!

You might also be interested to know that the image contains some clues to one of the themes of my new knitwear collection. ;)

Please do not redistribute these images. Thank you.
