Knit & Crochet Blog Week - Thursday

Knit & Crochet Blog Week.

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.

There are definitely related things I would like to learn.

Related Crochet thing:
I would really like to spend more time with hairpin lace, which can create some lovely things. Such as this shawl or you can look HERE if you are a Ravelry member. Or this top, HERE is the Ravelry link.

I just think it is another lovely thing to experiment with. I have attempted once, but never really gave it a good effort.

Related Knitting thing:

I would like to learn how to do more color work.

Something like Eunny Jang's Deep V Argyle Vest, HERE is the Ravelry link.

I have never done Double Knitting Color Work and would like to try that too. Maybe I would start out with something small like these potholders. I find it interesting to knit both the front and the back at the same time, while making the designs in opposite colors.


  1. You're the second one to specifically mention Eunny's vest. I like those potholders too. Might be a good double-knitting first project?

  2. I adore lace and color work. I think my last color work adventure is what put my elbows over the edge, though. When I think about my next project, these two categories are on the top of the why am I making a felted bag?

  3. What a lovely examples. I just bought a universal netting fork 2 days ago and now you show me what I can make with it!

  4. More ways to make lace? I guess you can never have too many...
