Improving Your Skillset
How far down the road to learning your craft do you believe yourself to be? Are you comfortable with what you know or are you always striving to learn new skills and add to your knowledge base? Take a look at a few knitting or crochet books and have a look at some of the skills mentioned in the patterns. Can you start your amigurumi pieces with a magic circle, have you ever tried double knitting, how’s your intarsia? If you are feeling brave, make a list of some of the skills which you have not yet tried but would like to have a go at, and perhaps even set yourself a deadline of when you’d like to have tried them by.
Well to make some decisions on this I decided to look at where I was last time we did this topic.
Looks like I was learning to crochet! Well, I can tell you now that those fingerless gloves never happened, but they will – I promise!
As for my crochet, well, see for yourself!
First there was Sam’s Blanket, and then Sam’s cushion. There have been a couple of other things since, but I want to blog about those another time.
One of the other things I wanted to do was to learn to knit socks, I’m most of the way through my first one and so about to learn kitchener stitch.
I still haven’t tried cables though and amigurumi these are on my to-do list for this year. I probably have a enough to keep me going for the rest of the month (I want to do away with a couple of WIP’s) so maybe June time will be a good time to try them both.
