For this post we were to think of a skill in our knitting that is new for us.
Usually every January I decide what my knitting goals will be for the new year. This year I didn't to that. Instead, myself and three other members of the Knitting Goddesses Knitting Guild enrolled in the Master Knitter's Program. I am working my way through Level 1 - slowly but surely!
I am finding it very interesting to take a step back from all the choices we knitters have - two handed fair isle knitting, mosaic knitting, entrelac knitting, knitting socks from the toe up and sweaters from the top down - and going back to the very beginning - garter st, stockinette st and ribbing. The course forces you to look at your knitting with a very critical eye as you knit the swatches that will be submitted for evaluation and to pull out your reference books to research techniques and answer the written part of the program.
There are 3 levels and my goal is to finish them all.
