  1. Roxann says:

    I have also done double sided knitting which is you doing both sides at once

  2. Cindy Roth says:

    I have done ALL of these techniques many times!

  3. Pauline says:

    I only got 18 out of 30. But thats ok cause i have really only done garter before now i am learning how to do lace and other stuff.


  4. Penandra says:

    I clicked on 27 out of 30, but final number was 7 out of 30. When I went back to check several selection unchecked themselves. What a waste of time.

  5. Marion says:

    Quiz would not let me tick all the boxes, I have done everything on the list and more.

  6. Kathy says:

    I haven’t done all of them, but is really only a choice I have made. I am positive I could do all of them if I decided I wanted to do so.

    • belendia says:

      I agree kathy, i could do them all if need b yet i choose what style i like and quick results lol happy knitting peace!

    • Jan says:

      absolutely agree,, I choose not to sew sequins,,, lace is not practical. never had the desire to knit socks. many of these boxes did not retain my check mark.

  7. Sarina Rose says:

    I am a wooly wonder. I mastered 24 of 30. I have been knitting for about 68 years and I still love it.

  8. Carol Mitchell says:

    I have done 16 out of 30.

  9. Renee Gibson says:

    I counted 20.

  10. Inger says:

    Pictures would not let me click on it
    Done many of them- never any lace

  11. Yvonne says:

    I am a beginner again as I have not knitted for over 2 decades (shame on me). I decided to pick a shawl pattern in order to challenge the old grey matter and it is. The pattern asks to slip the last two stitches and I have gone to pieces, I can’t remember how to do that; can anyone help?

  12. Melody Chase says:

    Thought this was a breeze. I have been knitting for 56 years now. I didn’t realize how much I knew about knitting! I go to a knitting group locally for over fifties and am kind of the troubleshooter and get folks back on course and explain where they went wrong. Some of us are in our eighties ( not me just yet)and its a pretty informal group but the variety of projects and different interests of the group are a constant source of inspiration to me. It is true that you are as young as you think you are!! M

  13. Janelle says:

    I can’t believe I got 22/30! And I’ve only been knitting for 2 and 1/2 years!

  14. Elizabeth Brown says:

    Wow I got 24 out of 30!! I have not knitted for nearly 30 years and since retiring last year I have recently rooted out my needles and started knitting again. I had forgotten just how much I enjoyed it! My mother taught me to knit when I was 5 years old and I had to put it aside when I was working full time. I was hoping I would pick it up easily as I had always knitted a lot. It was as if I had never stopped! Chuffed to bits, thanks mam xx

  15. Merle Rissler says:

    *Spot on with this write-up, I truly think this website needs much more consideration. I?ll probably be again to read much more, thanks for that info.

  16. Andrea Gagnon says:

    There is no double knitting, writing your own pattern, or being able to replicate an item you have seen in a store.

  17. Pam McCamant says:

    I have no need to use sequins or beads, so I don’t.
    Magic Loop to me is a waste of time as I’ve devised my own way with 2 same size 12 or 16″ circular needles. Plus I gave all different lengths of circular needles.
