I actually have two things I'd like to try/learn some day. The first is to attempt an Alice Starmore fair isle pattern. More specifically, this pattern:
I've made one of her aran patterns, but I'm terrified to try the colour-work. They look so complicated. I don't know that I would ever have the courage to cut my knitting apart!!
The second thing I would like to learn is how to spin. I have always loved old spinning wheels. In fact, I nearly brought one home from Newfoundland when Mom and I were there doing family tree research in 2000 -we couldn't fit it into the Cavalier with the luggage :)
The new wheels look so compact and architectural. I'm sure I could fit one into this old house. I do have a drop spindle somewhere in my sewing room. I should dig it our and see if I can find someone to teach me. Because heaven knows I need another
