I learned how to knit as a child, and rediscovered knitting a few years ago. My favourite thing is learning new techniques. There are so many ways to do things! Below, I’ve listed some techniques that I’ve tried. Most of them I would not have discovered if it hadn’t been for the Internet. I shudder to think about never knowing Magic Loop.
- Magic Loop
- Judy’s magic cast-on
- Cable cast-on
- Tubular cast-on and bind-off
- Jeny’s surprisingly stretchy bind-off
- Kitchener stitch
- Norwegian purl
Finding a new, useful technique makes me happy the same way that mastering an instrument or drawing a nice sketch does. Which is pretty major. Next post, I’ll explain why I like Magic Loop.
