Skill+ 1UP



It's day 2 of KCBW and today our topic is a new skill you have learned. This time last year I was just learning how to knit. I did not venture outside of knitting and purling until this year. I found a pretty lace pattern that used Slip Slip Knit (ssk). I did not know what this meant so I put the pattern away for a while until I finally got my courage up enough to try it. Thanks Youtube! There are some wonderful video tutorials of this stitch and I am so happy I learned it! This is my favorite stitch to do now. I have also learned to make socks and am really enjoying this pattern which uses ssk.






On another note....my husband and I made these Double Crumble Apple Pies last night and I just had to share them with you. Yum!

Yum the pie looks awesome, and I see so many people who can now knit socks and it makes me want to try it all the more XD

Come over to the dark side, Panda! :)
Hope, the ssk is definitely one of my favourites too. A k2tog just can't compare...
