you get to work with yarn that’s new to you which you may or may not like.
It forces you to make a gauge swatch
You get the challenge of a new pattern that will make you learn new and different skills.
You actually need to pay attention, read the pattern and slightly venture out of your comfort zone.
You can have a different sort of fun with your knitting.
I recently had great fun with a pair of differently designed socks which made me realise how I automatically fall back to my ways of constructing the sock resulting in much tinking and frogging.
This week I am fully engrossed in secret knitting but I love it. I testknit smaller items as my health condition plays up mega if I attempt anything heavier than 250g which has been tested for sure. So if you need help with a testknit contact me by leaving a comment or sending me a message. My Ravelry profile is Angora.
Enjoy your knitting this week.
