Last year, I bought the book :
Hattitude/ Knits for Every Mood
by Cathy Carron; published by Sixth & Spring Books.
I found one hat I want to make named “Vivacious”. But, I need to use double-pointed needles and a circular needle to make it. The technique of knitting in the round is a skill which I haven’t mastered yet. But, I will continue practicing knitting in the round by trying to knit “Vivacious.”
Another technique I have yet to master is making pompoms. I know I should be ashamed to admit this fact. It’s sad but true. I even bought a pompom maker. I know I will feel very proud when the little pompom strings are secure and don’t fall out.
I am also interested in learning the following crochet techniques: Hairpin Crochet; Tunisian Crochet And Broomstick Crochet. One of the joys of knitting and crocheting is that there is always a higher level of skill to reach. Knitting and crocheting are truly life long learning pursuits.
