    Default knitted , sew, two thick sticks

    My clothes, especially those knitted or thin ones or those made of wool which got torn by the sharp object, causing part of the material sticking out.

    I know there are mistakes in the sentence. But I don't know how to express :

    1. those made of wool
    2. causing part of the material sticking out
    3. got torn by the sharp object
    __________________________________________________ ___________

    1. What do we call the material that the ladies hold knitted and sew a piece of necklace and tops?

    2. What do we call that two thick sticks?
    3. Do we call sew in this way of making clothes?

    __________________________________________________ ___________


    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    1) What do we call the material that ladies hold while knitting and sew a piece of necklace and tops?

    Ok, you're mixing knitting and sewing....I *think* you mean knitting here. Ladies hold yarn while knitting.

    2) What do we call those two thick sticks?
    Knitting needles

    3) Do we call this way of making clothes sewing?
    No, not if you mean knitting.

    Alternatively, for (1), you might be talking about sewing in which case ladies would hold fabric while sewing it using thread and a needle.
