Knit & Crochet Blog Week: Tuesday - An Inspirational Pattern - knitcroblo2

Blog about a pattern or project which you aspire to. Whether it happens to be because the skills needed are ones which you have not yet acquired, or just because it seems like a huge undertaking of time and dedication, most people feel they still have something to aspire to in their craft. If you don’t feel like you have any left of the mountain of learning yet to climb, say so!

Although I’ve dabbled in stranding, I still count it as the technique I most want to aspire to. One felted bag and my Olympic hat are a start. But I want to learn to hold my yarn in two hands, instead of fudging it with both yarns in my right hand.

I aspire to a gorgeous Fair Isle sweater. I want it to look great and to actually fit.  I haven't picked out a pattern yet, but there are so many great ones to choose from. Will I ever get there? Who knows, but maybe someday I will.

I'd love to learn stranding too. I love the Icelandic Star sweater that was in a recent issue of IK. That could inspire me to learn! Do you have a sweater you're considering?

Yes, I'd love a yoked fair isle sweater...one day ;)

Likewise - stranding/fairisle is my next big ambition - I too attempted the olympic hat - worked well, albeit a little tall - but a gorgeous fairisle cardi is something I aspire to make !!!!! Good luck with yours!!
