For Master Knitter Monday today I'll tell you a little bit about my own Master Hand Knitting journey. I first heard about the TKGA MHK program in 2007, and signed up as soon as I found out about it! I passed level 1 in 2009 (two small children and life in general slowed me down)… Continue reading Master Knitter Monday
I'm starting something I'm calling Master Knitter Monday today! I'll share tidbits about my MHK journey, knitting tips and tricks, info about what makes a Master Knitter, and more! What is a Master Hand Knitter? A Master Knitter is someone who has completed all three levels of the TKGA Master Hand Knitter certification program. (BTW,… Continue reading Master Knitter Monday
I finished the TKGA Tech Editor certification course - I am now a certified Tech Editor! Pop over to my Services page if you are interested in hiring me as a Tech Editor for your next pattern or patterns! 🙂 The course was fantastic, and Sharon (the instructor) is a wonderful mentor, so it is… Continue reading I’m a certified Tech Editor!
This last weekend I was one of the instructors at the Carolina Fiber Frolic. I had so much fun!! I taught 5 classes: Fair Isle, Steeking, Socks a la Carte, Thrummed Mittens, and A Sampling of Short Rows. I was a good teacher and got pictures from my first day of classes, but then I… Continue reading Fiber Frolic was a blast!
Well, no more waiting for me! I'm the newest TKGA Master Knitter! This is the culmination of 7 years of hard work (not consistently - the first 5 were off and on, but the last 2 were pretty much dedicated exclusively to the MK work.) My resubmits should get back to me in the next few… Continue reading My biggest and best FO, EVER
This time on my resubmits!! 🙂 I got my box back a week ago (yay!!), and had a few things to redo, but really not much! My sweater and hat (and related patterns) all passed, as well as my reports and book/magazine reviews. Whew!! I just had three swatches to redo or fix, and one… Continue reading More waiting…
I'm still waiting for my Master Knitter level 3 notebook to come back to me. I figure I still have about 3 or more weeks to go. Waiting is hard, yo. 🙂 I started the Sheherezade shawl - I went with the gold beads. I'm very happy with it so far, and I'm pretty close… Continue reading Still waiting….
I'm patiently waiting for my level 3 box (or trying to). It won't come back to me for another 8 weeks or so now, at least. I hope it made its way safely to the first committee member! I'm doing a few things to keep busy - I'm spinning up some Jacob wool I had gotten… Continue reading Patiently Waiting
Sounds yummy, right? 😉 In actuality it is a method of dealing with steeks which hides the steek inside a few rows of knitting. Stitches are picked up through the fabric on the right side, and then stitches are picked up from the loops on the wrong side, and a few rows of knitting are… Continue reading Steek Sandwich
So, I dropped my Master Knitter Level 3 box in the mail yesterday!! Now begins the weeks of worrying and waiting to get it back. I've already started worrying - the post office only had a 12x12x5 box for me to use, so I had to squish the sweater and binder down to get the… Continue reading It’s in the mail!
