I tend to be a fearless knitter. I see a project I want to do, I figure out how to do it. Sometimes, the only deterrent is my gauge. Yup, I’m one of those people.
So I didn’t really learn any new skills this year. So my one-up-ing comes from experience points. This past year I have done more colourwork than I had done in previous years, and I did some modular knitting which involved a lot of picking up and knitting, as well as a lot of weaving in.
I do have skills I need to 1 up – mostly they have to deal with spinning flax fibres into linen yarn. I need to do this soon. That ties into the other skill I’m working on – finishing. I have a wicked case of startitis.
