As always, Alyson has spearheaded a collection of really exciting and unconventional pieces. Holla Knits always has something that you won’t find anywhere else!

I’m really excited about this magazine because, aside from the gorgeous patterns, there is a little article by yours truly in there! I wrote a bit about learning to crochet after spending the last 10+ years as a knitter. It’s hard to go back to basics! Especially when you’re a stubborn lady like me. Keep an eye out for this photo of my friend Katie’s adorable daughter CE (and my first crochet project is in there, too) in this issue and my article will be close behind.

Do you believe in teaching an old dog new tricks? Have you ever challenged yourself to learn something new?

What Should I Learn Next?

Written by Sarah. Posted in brioche, crochet, granny square, knits, poll, technique

While you might be under the impression that I am a Master Knitter (TM) that knows everything there is to know about everything, that is not the case. In actuality, I don’t know that much about anything but I can give you really good directions to the pedestrian crossing of the Williamsburg bridge (stay on South 6th for three blocks and turn left at Bedford) and I have a fairly extensive knowledge of Mad Men story arcs. I know  a thing or two about knitting as well. But there is still more to learn!

New year, new skill, right? I’m torn between two things that I really want to learn but I’m having trouble deciding which to tackle first. I’ve sworn I’d learn to crochet for the past two years. Maybe 2015 is actually going to be the time that I make my first granny square. I’ve also been dreaming of making a brioche scarf for a long time but I’ve been way to scared to try it.

So I need your help! Voting ends Friday 11:59pm EST! Help me pick!
