Crochet Quote: To the next level

Today’s crochet quote comes from the introduction to Custom Crocheted Sweaters, the book by Dora Ohrenstein that I reviewed and offered for giveaway earlier today.

“Many crafters see their hobby as something they do for relaxation and fun. There comes a point, however, when it’s obvious that to go to the next level, you have to get a little more serious about your craft.”

In this case, Dora was talking about gaining the skills necessary to create well-fitting crochet sweaters. What types of crochet projects do you want to do that require learning some new skills?

    I am now working on a skirt that is constantly changing and I have a sweater I’m dying to get back to. Having to constantly rework these two projects only to come up with a technique I later find is one used to make something like whats in my head makes me know I am definitely in need of more skills.
