A New Skill – Knit & Crochet Blog Week – Day 4 (and little Day 3)

Wow! Two posts in one day — rare, very rare   🙂   

If you’re looking for the Dogs on Thursday post, just scroll down.  I published that one early this morning.

Life got in the way yesterday and I never got to the Day 3 post about great knitters that have influenced us.  I have to say that much of my inspiration comes from the folks on Ravelry.  Such a wonderful community of knowledgeable, generous and talented knitters/crocheters.

I was able to read several entries from other folks last night.  And I have a whole new list of designers and blogs to check out.

And now, to get back on track for Day 4 …

A New Skill

Is there a skill related to your hobby that you hope to learn one day? maybe you’re a crocheter who’d also like to knit? Maybe you’d like to learn to knit continental, knit backwards, try cables or attempt stranded colourwork.

I mentioned my lace journey on Day 2 and my desire to move to lace weight yarn and revisit nupps.  Each pattern adds something new.  I have much to learn.

There are three other skills/techniques I’d like to try out.  At least once … but then I’ve said that before.  🙂

Entrelac is high on the list.  And then I’ll apply that to lace, of course.  Diana is a beautiful shawl in my queue, just waiting for me to learn what I need to get started.

Sometime soon, I’m planning a journey into colorwork.  I attempted a child’s sweater once that was just so frustrating and never finished.  And maybe if I get it figured out, I’ll make one of these.  I don’t need it, but I want it.

And lately, tapestry crochet has really caught my eye.

Who knows what I’ll add to my list after I check some other KnitCroBlo folks.  So many journeys ahead!
