Something to Aspire To 2KCBWDAY6
Is there a pattern or skill that you don’t yet feel ready to tackle but which you hope to (or think you can only dream of) tackling in the future, near or distant?
I posted about this very subject, back in January, so I did think I should maybe skip this topic and play the wildard instead (all about embellishments). Then I realised that one single button is the extent of my embellishment usage, so perhaps that wouldn't work *laughs*
But the post I did before only covered 3 patterns, and there are plenty more that have been added to my neverending list of things to knit, in fact there are still a few things from my previous "must knit " post that I haven't got round to yet either *rolls eyes at self*
Lace is still something I really want to try and do properly, if only because I am totally in love with this pattern (more details in original post):
As I've not made a shawl before, I think I'll make a simpler one first, to get the hang of the construction!
I've only done one sort of cable so far, so I'm planning more experimentation in that area, but as the weather is getting warmer perhaps that'll be a little while off (cables always strike me as a wintry thing, is it just me?)
And, as I have mentioned a few times, I am determined to make socks *determined face* Everyone seems to get such a kick out of them *groans at the unintentional pun* and I want some of that!
Above all of these, though, is finishing... I really need to get better at that *sighs* I hate doing it, but after spending so long making things, I should take that extra bit of time to finish them beautifully. I should, really *trying hard to convince self*
