Knitting and Crochet Blog Week-Day 4

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."

Yeah well I guess I already covered this on day 2. Color work and steeking. I can do colorwork, Fair Isle, where you knit with different yarns, not little bobbin of yarn (called Intarsia). Personally I have done intarsia and to me it is a pain. the little bobbins of yarn always get tangled and I wind up spending more time untangling them then actually knitting. Which just may be the reason that Skywalker's flame sweater never made it. At one point there were 9 different bobbins in a 6 inch knitting area. I am designing a sweater for him that will be similar but I am going to use fair isle. I have taught myself to use knit using a yarn in each hand so for me it actually seems to knit faster,
