Blog Week 2012 - 3KCBWDAY6 - Improving Skills

Hmmm, how would I like to improve my skills. 

That is quite tough, I mean where do you start?
This is what I definitely want to achieve by the end of this year:
  1. Knitting socks two at a time
  2. Knitting socks on the magic loop
  3. Crochet a complex piece of clothing
  4. Knit an Icelandic patterned jersey
  5. Make something that has needle-felting on it.
  6. Finish the summer cardigan, I started and now frogged - more about that on Wednesday!!
Will keep you updated on what I achieve!


  1. Socks two at a time! Yes! If I am going to make socks, they have to be two at a time, otherwise I would never finish them!!

    1. Hi MWitch3,

      Is it easy? I have socks that need to be knitted for a friend and I was hoping to try and do that way.

      Thanks for visiting.


  2. I also have the magic loop method on my list of things to learn.
    About two socks at a time, I have heard of many knitters/crocheters who do that and it somehow makes sense.
    Just right now I am having both sleeves for my cardigan on the same circular needle as I felt it would be easier to do inc/dec and pattern changes at the same time. And I have to say it works perfect!

    1. Hi Kim,

      Yes, I must admit, I also knit the bigger things in twos, fronts (if I have two and am not knitting in the round) and sleeves, but I saw some videos of people knitting socks two at a time and it looked a little complicated. They were using 2 cables, and knitting back and forth on those. :O

      Thanks for visiting

  3. good list! I fell off the wagon on this Blog Week. sad.
    But You've just upped the anti with your list! I'll have to put one together!

    1. Hi More Like June,

      I loved all your posts from Blog week, it is not always easy to find the time, and you have just started a new chapter in your life, trying to juggle being back at work and everything you were doing before - so I think you did wonderfully!
