TKGA, Master Hand Knitting, Level 2

Into the capable hands of UPS


24 swatches, all carefully knit and researched.

19 questions researched, answered and referenced.

4 book reviews.

A paper on the History of Knitting, all researched and referenced.

A cute little Fair Isle wristlet – knit three times until I thought it might be acceptable.

An argyle sock – which left me in disbelief that it was actually a popular thing to make at one time.

A vest, which didn’t have to be designed from scratch, but which I designed from scratch anyway. (I can’t wait to show it to you, because I like it!)

…all this, squashed into one notebook and a baggie for shipment to TKGA headquarters in Zanesville.

This is the next step for Level 2 of the TKGA Master Hand Knitting Program, sending it in for review! I’ve worked on it intensely for at least six months. The review committee will evaluate it, then send it back to me with requests to re-do any parts that don’t live up to their standards. Then I’ll re-submit whatever they don’t like the first time around and hope like heck they pass me.

For Level 1, I had to re-submit the hat project and three questions. I wonder what I’ll have to re-do this time around? I’m kind of embarrassed to admit that I actually woke up in a sweat at 3:00 one morning having had a nightmare that they sent back the entire notebook, saying I had to re-submit everything. Now, that’s obsessed!
