Three things I want to learn this year.

1. Helix knitting or helical stripes. My understanding is that "helix" is one single color stripe and helical is two or more colors. Admittedly, I haven't done a lot of research so I could have that wrong. But basically, it's a way of doing jogless stripes. What ever it's called, that's what I want to learn.

2. Brioche. I know. I think I may be the last person on the planet to learn this technique. Everyone and their brother seems to know how to do it. It's about time I learned.

3. This is a tough choice. If this was a random Friday or even a Tuesday, I'd have no problem, but being a Thursday, I must narrow it down and well... I want to learn to knit with two colors in one hand (I currently hold one yarn in each hand when doing colorwork) and I also want to learn to knit backwards. What I really want is to do some entrelac knitting but I don't want to have to keep flipping my needles around. Thus, my desire to knit backwards. Knitting backwards may win out over knitting with two colors in one hand. Although.... the two colors in one hand thing sounds like it would be easier to learn and much quicker to master. And you know I'm all about easy these days. Decisions, decisions!
