Well, I wouldn't say that I have really increased my skill level(s) much since this time last year. Unfortunately, I've just been moving all over the place this past year, so there was a lot of time in which I haven't been knitting (I know, crazy huh?!). I will note a few things:
- This time last year, I had just begun to learn to crochet...and although I still prefer to knit, I did crochet a few projects and learned a handful of stitches, before I left Monterey. Why you ask before Monterey, well one of my good friends there is an avid crocheter, so I had a go-to person that I could ask a million questions to. :) Thanks Jenn! Pics of a few crochet projects:
- I typically have "single sock syndrome" which means that I have no problem finishing 1 sock, but that second sock always gets me. I get done with the first one and just can't seem to find the motivation to start (let alone, finish) that darn, 2nd sock! ;) So, I learned how to knit socks 2-at-a-time over the past year...but to no surprise, I haven't come anywhere close to finishing the pair! Hehe...
Honestly...that's all I got! I know, I feel like a slacker...but I have high hopes for this next year, in terms of learning more skills and gaining knowledge on my craft(s)!! :P Here's a list of things I want to learn:
- Socks - toe up!
- Mastering the...SWEATER!
- Fair isle
