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.
Mooncalf said in her post earlier in the day that her skill acquisition tends to be project-driven. I’m the same – if a project requires me to learn a new technique, I poke the Internet or pick up a book and figure it out. I did have a plan to learn two-handed colourwork, but so far I’ve only got round to making a single Ziggy sock (which I frogged because I didn’t like the yarn). The actual colourwork wasn’t too hard, though, so I’ll probably do some more of that another time!
Actually the skill I’m most curious about at the moment is probably crochet. As far as I’ve been concerned so far in my knitting career, crochet hooks are for picking up dropped stitches. In a pinch I’ll use a crochet invisible cast-on, and once I crocheted a neckline onto a knitted sweater. But that’s about it. I never really thought crochet looked particularly nice. However, I’ve seem some lovely crocheted items recently, and some of my knitter friends have been getting into crochet. I’m also going on holiday to Kenya in July, and I’m told airlines look much more favourably on crochet hooks than knitting needles.
Oh dear, I seem to have committed myself to learning to crochet!
