I only knit what I find enjoyable.

However, I've been forced to learn new techniques along the way. For example, applied/attached i-cord! And I'm so happy I applied myself to it and learned to do it! Now I use it even when it isn't necessarily called for!

I avoid sweater patterns that require a process that I don't like, for example, I avoid top-down construction. And sleeves that are picked up around the armhole, knit (in-the-round) down to the cuff. It's very difficult to block these kinds of sleeves. I prefer blocking flat pieces, then seaming them together.

So to answer your question...no, knitting isn't like school where you have no choice about the curriculum. Knitting is totally optional, and personal to each individual.
