Zipper in knitwear, the no-sewing way- I didn't even know this was possible!.
Should keep this for future reference. One day I may actually make a project that needs zippers
Easy mug snugs. Knit or Crochet a rectangle the width of a mug and long enough to wrap around a mug (make sure it is going to be tight). Embroider a felt applique. Fold in half length-wise and where the corners meet, a few slip stitches at each end and you are done! Great gift idea!
The easy way to put on names, mottos, etc: Chain stitch embroidery over plain knitting
