Day Two: 29th March. Skill + 1UP. 2KCBWDAY2
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?

Sadly I haven't learned any new skills this year. I have a few on my list that I really want to delve in to and at the top of that list is double knitting. Last year I bought yarn to make Rainbow scarf, which is double knitted with Kuani. Even bought the Kauni I liked for it, but I haven't dipped my foot into this technique. Maybe after I finish the scarf that's on my needles right now.

I did have fun at my first attempt at dying yarn. I dyed some sock yarn at my LYS during a Midnight Night. I love how it turned out but haven't decided on a pattern to use it for.
  The colors are pretty wild, but it was a lot more fun than I imagined and I'd like to do it again.

  1. LOVE the colors!

    So, I have a double-knitting project that's awaiting me, too. Wanna figure it out together? When are you up here next?

    I think you have a future in dying!

    We should work through double knitting together, I want to try that this summer.
