I set a goal when I ordered my Master Hand Knitting Level III materials to finish by my 50th birthday, which was about 10 days ago. I missed the deadline by a couple of days, but I did manage to get it in the mail on March 31, one week after my birthday, and 6 months after I passed Level II.
I had some help.
|Katy cat proofread my report on traditional knitting styles*|
I had to design, knit and write the patterns for a sweater and a hat. One had to be an Aran design (heavily cabled) and one a Fair Isle (stranded color).
I made the sweater for Michael.
He kept holding his right hand up against his body.
|Studying the ground|
I told him to stop doing that, it looked like he had polio.
|Gotta love a man who laughs at your jokes|
So he contemplated the universe, like any good male model.
And the hat was just an experiment, modeled by Nina.
I expect it will be June some time, at the earliest, before I hear back. I did get an email from the TKGA office today telling me that the package had been received and sent off to the committee.
*Today was Katy cat's last day on Earth, one month short of his 20th birthday. He was a good cat, and a great proofreader. He will be sorely missed.
