...Learning Me Some Skills...

Thanks to everyone who has been checking in on my posts for this year's KCBW! I have had a lot of fun putting them together and reading others!

Today's Topic: Improving Your Skillset

I have known how to knit 4ish years now and have only been serious about it for 2 years (?). To say that I need to improve my knitting skills is an understatement. I will say I have come a long way in 2 years, just look at some of my early posts. Wow. Was I really THAT bad?

I have learned a few things year, to name a few:
  • Cables
  • Top-Down, No Seams (thank goodness) Sweater Construction
  • Jogless Stripes (Thank Goodness!)
  • Several different cast on, increase and decrease methods

I like today's topic because it gives me a chance to record what I would like to improve on (perhaps a secondary YOP list?). Bahaha!
  • I would LOVE to improve the general look of my knitting. Sometimes it just doesn't look even and smooth!
  • I would enjoy trying some Fair Isle.
  • Seaming. If there is a fool-proof way to teach a fool how to do this, please let me know. I am terrible at it.
  • And if you read my son's post from yesterday (Can't believe he hacked my blog. Smartest 11 month old I know.) I would like to learn Amigurimi.
This looks like a list I can work on throughout the year, in fact, I will add them to my second Year of Projects list now! (Oh, you know you have already started! And if you haven't, check out Blog A Long at Ravelry!You should join us! )


  1. I said the same thing about using my list in my blog as a Year of Projects list! I so dropped the ball on this past year because that list was so over my head realistically to complete haha.

  2. Great idea to add these to your year of projects!
