Day 2 Knitting & Crochet Blog Week

Knitting and Crochet Blog Week Banner Blue

Day Two: 29th March. Skill + 1UP

Look back over your last year of projects and compare where you are in terms of skill and knowledge of your craft to this time last year. Have you learned any new skills or forms of knitting/crochet (can you crochet cable stitches now where you didn’t even know such things existed last year? Have you recently put a foot in the tiled world of entrelac? Had you even picked up a pair of needles or crochet hook this time last year?

Well I had knitted & crocheted before but I hadn’t done any for years. Thanks to blogging, & the discovery of some fabulous blogs, my love of knitting & especially crocheting have resurfaced.

These are some of the blogs that have inspired me:

I’ve tried out a few crocheted hexagons & flowers & also made a ‘Lucy’ bag. It’s not great but I plan to make another & hopefully it will be more successful.

I didn’t know you could crochet cables & I’ve never heard of entrelac so no, no feet have been put into either area, lol.

I’m feeling a little out of my depth having joined in on this. I checked out other bloggers involved & they’ve done some incredible stuff, mine is ‘very’ basic. Oh well I’ll pull out some of the things I’ve made over the years & put up some pics during the week & maybe next year I’ll be able to look back & see that my knowledge & skills have grown. :-)))
