The topic for today is skills. You can read more blogpost here.
"Look back over your last year of projects and compare where you are in terms of skill and knowledge of your craft to this time last year. Have you learned any new skills or forms of knitting/crochet. Can you crochet cable stitches now where you didn’t even know such things existed last year? Have you recently put a foot in the tiled world of entrelac? Had you even picked up a pair of needles or crochet hook this time last year?"
Well, I had plans about learning entrelac and learn to spin, but I haven't done either of them... And I actually didn't know you could crocohet cable stitches until I came across these mittens. The only thing I have done that have been new to me the last year is to knit a sweater from the top down. Probably not much to brag about ;)
The first one was the Tappan Zee Cardigan.
And I finally had a chance to knit the February Baby Sweater when my cousin had a little girl :)
