Something to aspire to – 2KCBWDAY6Is there a pattern or skill that you don’t yet feel ready to tackle but which you hope to (or think you can only dream of) tackling in the future, near or distant? Is there a skill or project that makes your mind boggle at the sheer time, dedication and mastery of the craft? Maybe the skill or pattern is one that you don’t even personally want to make but can stand back and admire those that do. Maybe it is something you think you will never be bothered to actually make bu can admire the result of those that have.
At this point in my knitting, I think I have tried most projects. I knit for enjoyment. I refuse to knit something that I don't enjoy, regardless of the finished item. I have finally mastered hats LOL, socks, shawls, beading, 'ghans, blankets, etc.
The one skill I need to work on is seaming. I really suck at seaming. And since iI suck, I hate it. I am currently working on a sweater, which will require seaming. So stay tuned.
Two skills I admire very much, but have absolutely no desire to try much less master are spinning and dyeing. I do love knitting with handspun, hand dyed yarn, so I am very glad the spinners and dyers exist.
