Something To Aspire To - 2KCBWDAY6


One of the reasons that I love knitting is that there is always something new to learn. Although sometimes I feel like I have just dipped my toes into the shallow water and have yet to dive in. That is especially the case when it comes to stranded color work, even though I am familiar with the technique and have made small projects using it. So one of my future knitting goals is to make a sweater involving steeks. A pattern that has long been a favorite is Little Birds by Ysolda Teague. I love that it uses traditional techniques but the finished sweater is fresh and modern. Plus any project involving buttons, my embellishment of choice, is absolutely irresistible.
