When it comes to anything, knitting in this case, I tend to learn about one technique or pattern, then explore those to see what I can do. It's not necessary to know how to do everything, even though it would be nice.

Wisdom is knowing what to do. Skill is how to do it. Virtue is getting it done.

That which does not kill you, isn't trying hard enough.

It was awesome but...I had conflicting feelings. Is my knitting purely a hobby, for stress relief it also a skill and I need to try to learn everything, even if I don't enjoy it, or think it too fiddly etc?

Different than me learning stuff I actually want to, like two at a time socks or top down raglan pullovers etc. THOSE things I'm self-taught via books and the internet.

Yes, I think entirely TOO much.
Read back through the thread and you'll see we said no. Learn what you want at your own pace. There are no knitting police. If they hire some at Guild meetings and it bothers you then don't go.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
