You know, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy the last subject as much as I did–I think I have a relatively uninteresting learn to knit experience, and it really didn’t occur to me that other people would have stories that were interesting, because clearly everyone is just like me and has the same experiences… :P There are SO MANY people participating in this that it’s going to be hard for me to read everyone’s blog and comment, but if you leave me a comment here, I promise to make reciprocation a high priority!
Blog about a pattern or project which you aspire to. Whether it happens to be because the skills needed are ones which you have not yet acquired, or just because it seems like a huge undertaking of time and dedication, most people feel they still have something to aspire to in their craft. If you don’t feel like you have any left of the mountain of learning yet to climb, say so!
For me, my “Mt. Everest” of knitting is a sweater! I want to knit a sweater that fits me! I’ve started a bunch, but have never been totally in love with the WIP, and since I’m a process knitter, I just can’t knit something that I’m not enjoying, even if I think I’ll love the FO. Most of the sweaters I have started have been st st, though. That is killer for me – I don’t like long purl rows, but st st in the round is sooooo boring. I think to conquer this sweater thing, I need a good, interesting pattern. I’m thinking Vivian, by Ysolda. I know that her patterns are fabulous, the yarn is bulky and there are cables EVERYWHERE. An attractive FO, with an interesting process. Plus, I love hoods.
