...my Master Knitter Level 2 submission results! It's been about 3 weeks now, so I have about 3 to 5 weeks wait left. I've been trying to keep my mind off of it as best as I can. I started a lace shawl right away, and I finished it about a week ago: Pattern: Swallowtail… Continue reading Anxiously Awaiting
Sorry for being MIA for so long! I've been busy, busy with house remodeling (it's done now!) and holiday goings on, and getting back into the homeschool swing. I actually have a couple of things to show you today! First, I finished my Spectra: Pattern: Spectra by Stephen West Yarn: Knit Picks Capretta in Platinum… Continue reading FO Friday
I've been plugging away on my Master Knitter vest and report. I have my outline for the report done, I just need to start actually writing it. And the vest is fairly well planned out and the front is more than halfway done. But I'm worrying about my knit stitch prior to my cable panel.… Continue reading Slow Progress
This really should be a Masters Monday post, but I finished this yesterday, so why not post it today! I finally finished my argyle sock for Master Knitter Level 2! This was my second attempt, and it looks much better than my first! Pattern: Top Down Argyle Socks by Jennifer Donze (Cast On magazine Nov… Continue reading FO Friday
I've decided that my one button band (the seed stitch one) needs to be redone, because the first buttonhole (OF COURSE it was the first one!) disrupts the seed stitch pattern where it shouldn't. And I didn't notice it until a day or two ago. HOW did I not see that?? Anyhow - that will… Continue reading Master Knitter Monday, and WiPs.
Okay, so I meant to write up a post yesterday for Master Knitter Monday, but it got too busy, so here it is a day late! 🙂 I have lots more to show you! All my swatches are now done!! Yay! Of course the 4 that I saved for last (the 4 buttonhole swatches) are… Continue reading More Master Knitter Swatches.
I've had Level 2 instructions in my hands since 2009. And now 2012 is almost over. That's pitiful!! Well, since I've dawdled a bit too long, of course a new version of the instructions came out about a week ago. More than just a few typos were fixed in this revision! The biggest change is… Continue reading Masters Monday – Lots of swatches!!
I've gotten quite a bit done on the Master Knitter front! I have several swatches to show you today: I'm not sure that swatch #12 is good enough - I'm seeing a bit of wonky stitches in there, although it looks more prominent in the photo than in real life. And I may need to… Continue reading WiP Wednesday
I'm still chugging away - I do have a new sweater to show you, but it's blocking at the moment, so I'm going to wait to show it to you until it's all dry and I can model it for you. It's the Girl Friday sweater I had started way back when - all it… Continue reading Still here…
I'm back from an amazing 5 days at the TKGA conference in Greensboro, NC. The whole experience was phenomenal. I took a good number of classes, and went to several events, and also met so many wonderful people and had such great conversations! The 'On Your Way to the Masters' day on Wednesday was fantastic. … Continue reading Master Knitter Monday #16: TKGA Wrap-Up
