Look back over your last year of projects and compare where you are in terms of skill and knowledge of your craft to this time last year.
These kinds of questions are always a bit tricky for me. I’ve tried my first cashmere shawl, and I suppose I’ve learned a bit specifically about knitting with cashmere, and had a harsh reinforcement about lifelines. More than that, however, I’ve gotten more practice with improvising and changing projects as I go on. I’m more willing to frog back when things don’t work (excepting for that cashmere shawl, which is still hibernating in my freezer…) I’d have to say that I have improved a little in skill, and a lot in confidence, over the past year.

I did not win the Sylphia Shawl giveaway at Sunset Cat. Nor did I win Vegan Craftastic’s minimalist knitting pattern, but she has one for Twig and Leaf Botanicals which I entered (closes April 4). There’s another giveaway for Quince and Company yarn and pattern at Knitting Pipeline.
