I just saw this link about using iron on transfers to label your knitting with fiber content/name/wasing instructions etc. Whatever you can get your ink jet to print. There is a whole little tutorial (http://www.grumperina.com/labelcontent.htm) on how to do it.

I KNOW!!!! I'm so going to do that. Even if it seem slightly cheesy, I do think the washing information would be very helpful :thumbsup:

WOW, thanks Kemp...my sister is CONSTANTLY asking me why I don't label my knitting...AND I had to write a HUGE note on an a label from the 100% wool yarn that I used to make an afghan for a gift...I wanted them to :shock: see that it was 100% wool and, as I said, I wrote in huge letters how to care for it...label would have looked nicer; Although...the huge label note still needed to be included to these recipients...lol!!
Thanks again....will be using it quite a bit for Christmas :D

That is SO cool. Just last night, I was thinking, I wish I had personalized labels, as I'm beginning to complete some of my Christmas knitted gifts. :cheering:

That is a great idea!! I was using the little tags that just say "Handmade", but this is soooo much better! Thanks for the link!!

Another tip when giving knitted gifts, add a few yards of the yarn tied in a little bow, so *heaven forbid* if it ever got a hole in it, they could stitch it up with the original yarn.
