De-Pilling Sweaters Scarves and other Knitted or Crocheted Items

As an avid knitter, I'm asked by many people how to remove lint and "pills" from items made from yarn. There are several methods that I've been taught over the years but one of my favorites involves a simple pumice stone that most of us use on our feet.
Pumice stones are fairly inexpensive and can be found in the health and beauty section of pretty much any drug or department store. There's not really any trick to removing lint or pills, just rub the affected area of your knitted item gently with the stone and you'll find that your scarf, hat or sweater will be lint free in a pinch.
