4KCBWDAY1 Just Monkeying Around!

The start of the 4th Annual Knitting & Crochet Blog Week is marked by house selection. Of the four houses available I'd most definitely add myself to The House of Monkey!
 
 
"The House of Monkey: Intelligent and with a fun loving side, Monkeys like to be challenged with every project presenting them with something new and interesting"
 
Since I started knitting again in 2009 I have consistently stretched my skills (generally with much swearing!) My first couple of WIP's from only knowing basic garter stitch were a hat knit in the round followed by a lace shawl for a Craft Fairy.
 
 
 
From trying new challenges, from simple lace and cables to taking a continental knitting course earlier this year, colourwork and two at a time toe-up socks, I have expanded both my knowledge and my love for not just knitting, but the tools and techniques involved.
 
But most of all, I love that the learning never stops; there is always a new technique or style or pattern begging to tried, with this years challenges set at entrelac, double knitting and crochet!
