TEN for 2010, Part I

TEN for 2010 is an idea I got from my favorite podcast, Stash and Burn.  Jenny and Nicole were talking about it in their January 5th podcast.  It came from a discussion board in Ravelry's Stash and Burn Groupies group.  Basically the idea was to come with 10 new techniques that you want to learn in 2010.  So let's begin...

No. 1 - Cables.  I have yet to learn how to cable. 
No. 2 - Knitted in pleats.  Now, I don't know if this is considered a technique or not but I'm very curious to see how this is done.

I plan to accomplish these first two with Nora's Sweater by Pamela Powers, which is on the cover of the Winter 2009 Interweave Knits.  We're starting this as a knit-along project on 2/11.  I don't think I'd have the courage to try it otherwise...Margaret promises me I can do it.

I am so excited for this project.  We're going to use Lana D'Oro by Cascade Yarns.  I've picked out #1036 which is this gorgeous deep red.  A week or so after I ordered the yarn, I was going through my stash and discovered that I already had one skein of it that I had received as a give-away at the Stitch n Pitch.  Now, I need to find a one-skein accessory to knit that will go with my sweater.  I'm thinking of some type of hat...hmmm...

More on TEN for 2010, as I think of them.

What kind of superhero do you want to be?
