In the last year or two I’ve been trying to improve my knitting. Mostly that just involves practice, practice, and more practice. But there were a few specific skills I wanted to learn and some that I need to improve. I even wrote them down in my knitting journal.
Last year I got good enough at Kitchener Stitch that I don’t even have to look it up anymore. That was a real boost to my confidence. My knitting universe was expanding. I felt like I wasn’t going to be stuck knitting only scarves and baby blankets for the rest of my life.
Recently I have been working on some hats with short rows. I’ve done quite a few of them so now I feel confident about wrapping the yarn, then hiding the wrap on the next pass.
I’ve signed up for some classes in chart reading, provisional cast-ons, and continental knitting, too. I know there will always something new for me to learn.
How about you? What do you want to learn next?
