A Learner Be
Today's Maker's May question: What new technique would you like to learn?
My big knitting bugaboo is double-pointed needles. Technically, I know how to use them. I understand what's supposed to happen. But I simply cannot knit with them because I can't hold them!

Stitches slide off, a needle slips out and onto the floor, I reach down to pick it up and lose more stitches. Cast on again, somehow manage to tangle the needles (NOT the yarn) when I'm dividing stitches, get that straightened out, then the ball of yarn has rolled away and now one of the cats is playing with it, and Heaven help if I lay this down to retrieve it, because it will be impossible to pick back up correctly. It's hopeless.
