Knitting and Crochet Expanded

The New Year is approaching and that means for me goals. What about you? Why not set yourself a goal of learning something new in the needlearts world? Look on the Knitter's Review site for the 2011 Calendar of Knitting Events and go to an event if you haven't been to one or go to a different event that you haven't tried. Take up a class to expand your knitting and/or crochet further. It's a whole world out there for us to explore. We have the opportunity to be in a time that a lifetime could not be enough to venture out on all there is to learn just with the needlearts. Look below for an eye's view at what there is to learn.

If you think you have reached your peak after learning how to knit and purl and you've tried a host of knit stitches, I would like to let you know you've just begun. Knitting has expanded in leaps and bounds as to what can be done. Here is a short listing of extras you might want to add to your learning-out-of-the-box list for the future.

Techniques to learn

I haven't forgotten crochet. After you know the basics of sc, dc, trcr, there are other fun ways to expand your crochet knowledge.

So as the New Year approaches, show more and more of your potential in all aspects of your life. As always I say, "Have Fun" with learning and growing.
