Learning a new skill!

What is something you wish you knew how to do? (Day 5 Bloganuary prompt)

There is a proverb in my language “What you have learnt is a mere handful: What you haven’t learnt is the size of the world. “

There are so many skills that I do not have and there are so many skills I wish to learn but one stands out. I wish I can make a flower garland, specifically a jasmine garland.

When I was young I loved watching flower ladies make a garland at a supersonic speed. Whenever I had time I used to buy some flowers and tried to make one, they were loose or flowers with tiny stem wouldn’t hold itself. I never mastered that skill.

After moving to the States, I was able to buy carnations and make a garland. I cheated here. I used to have a thread and a needle and used to make the garland . I did not make garland using the specific knot that is traditionally used to make a garland.

I just googled and found a very nice you tube link on how to make it. Thanks to my blogging challenge I may try to achieve this skill.
