I would like to knit socks on circulars also entrelac knitting and just a begining fair isle mitten pattern and possibly step by step knitting off a chart because I am use to written directions and find chart patterns a little bit scary for us older knitters who are wanting to try something new but........

Lace. I have been daunted by it always, but it is time to start.

I would like to learn the kettle dying technique because I love how it looks.

I want to be able to knit two socks on one circular needle (magic loop). I have the book and have glanced through it (doesn't look too difficult) so I need to just sit down and really figure it out. I LOVE using magic loop for socks so it seems like a natural progression to do two socks at once.

I would also like to start the Pi shawl but I just can't wrap my mind around a circular shawl. Half of the shawl would be hidden when you're wearing it, right?

For those of you who want to learn continental -- you will be so glad you did. I no longer have a dread of purling rows or doing ribbing and fair isle is a breeze. Learning continental has really put new life in my knitting. Go for it!

I am attempting my first pair of toe-up socks using the magic loop method. I am also going to attempt to knit an entrelac scarf, a technique I have always found daunting.

My one attempt at intarsia has made me nervous to even think about fair isle, but I would really love to try it because there are some beautiful patterns out there for mittens and sweaters that I would love to make.

Oh, and I would love to finally work on learning how to be a continental knitter. It seems like some techniques would be a lot easier if I learn how, and it would help me be able to teach others to knit if I know both methods (because english might not be comfortable for everyone I know).

I haven't tried doing brioche stitch yet or double knitting. And I'm still working on steeks, but that won't be until fall when I work on my fair isle vest again!
