The Road to Master Knitter Certification…
…is NOT just about swatching!
I learned to knit a little bit here and a little bit there by:
- nagging my older cousin into teaching me when I was little
- taking a couple of classes over the years
- looking up a particular technique on the internet
- just diving into an interesting looking pattern & figuring it out
After having been knitting for 30+ years I considered myself a fairly advanced knitter.
Well, not so comrades, I didn’t know why the heck I was doing some of the things I was doing!!!
The MASTER KNITTER program helps answer those questions. As you knit the required swatches, you have to do research and answer questions on WHY you are doing something a certain way, WHEN you should be using one technique vs. another and so forth. (Remember those school worksheets you had to fill out with a zillion questions?)
So far, it’s been fun to do research and take time to figure out why things are done in a certain way and to examine my knitting stitch-by-stitch.
…progress on my swatches coming soon!
