As a new knitter, almost everything I did had some learning in it. The only thing I entered 2007 knowing how to do was knit and purl. But then again -- looked at from a certain angle, that's the only things you need to know how to do!
So my steep learning curve in 2007 included:
- socks, which themselves include:
- knitting in the round
- picking up stitches
- short rows
- reading a lace chart
- provisional cast-on
- Elizabeth Zimmerman's sewn bind-off
- Judy's magic cast-on for toe-up socks
- single crochet
- picot bind-off
- Magic Loop
What about you?
