Knit & Crochet Blog Week: 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.


Steeking. That would be the next big challenge for me. Ever since I took the steeking class at Stitches Midwest I've been secretly wanting to cut my knitting. The class was more educational and lecture based which was interesting. At the end the teacher, Nancy Bush who was amazing, let us take some scissors to knitted fabric. Hooked-I tell ya!

I would also love to learn to crochet and to read crochet patterns. I can do some very simple stitches, but ultimately pumping out a few afghans would be kinda nice. Heck, knitting blankets Takes. For. Ever. Ask me how I know!!
