Knit & Crochet Blog Week: 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.

I would like to learn how to cut steeks. I don’t know how it works, I don’t know what it involves, and I think that cutting into your knitting sounds absolutely terrifying. And yet, knitters do it all the time with no problem. I want to experience that same fearless approach to steeks!

Magic loop is another skill I’d like to learn, but that one sounds less scary. Designing garments is also a skill I’d like to aspire to, but that will have to wait until I have more free time for myself. I think my first step in that direction will be to pick up Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Knitting Without Tears and start with the yoke pullover.
