It's in the mail!!!

Well, WIPs Wrestlemania got me motivated to finally finish my Master Knitter Level I notebook! I mailed it out this last week. Now it's simply anxiously waiting for 4 to 8 weeks for the results!

(All 16 Swatches)

(Project: Striped Hat)

(That's one thick notebook!)

I'm so very happy that I finally finished it. I learned an enormous amount in the 1.5 years that I've been working on it. I can't wait to pass so that I can start on Level II!!

For those that maybe aren't familiar with it, the Master Knitter program is through The Knitting Guild Association, and there are three levels. Each level requires knitting swatches demonstrating different techniques, knitting one or more projects (Level I is a hat, Level II is a sweater-vest and an argyle sock, Level III is a self-designed hat and sweater), answering several questions, and writing one or more multi-page reports. All items need to be researched, and provided with full references. Once you pass all three levels, you're a certified Master Knitter!

Keep your fingers crossed for me! I'll let you know as soon as I get my results!! (I'm biting my nails over here!)

The waiting is hard, but you will pass with flying colors. I have Level II and started it years ago. I just got the new directions and need motivation to do it. I learned huge amounts with Level I and expect that at Level II. Maybe we should start a support group.
