Knitting blog week day 4: A new skill

Is there a skill related to your hobby that you hope to learn one day? maybe you’re a crocheter who’d also like to knit? Maybe you’d like to learn to knit continental, knit backwards, try cables or attempt stranded colourwork.

A couple of years ago, I got to knit sitting next to the Yarn Harlot. I'm a fast knitter, but this lady is phenomenal. She calls her technique "Irish Cottage Knitting." The lady knits like she's on fire. I asked her to slow down so I could watch, and I have studied this video. However, I have not been able to reproduce the technique. And I want to.
