Knitting Guild Association Masters Program
Has anyone either completed any of levels, started or thought about starting/completing the program? :thinking:

I have started Level One, but have put it on hold. The way that they word things is vague, and from what I hear doing the Basics course can get you used to their "format".

I plan on grabbing the Basics course when I get the opportunity and doing that first. I could just go online and ask people who have done it, "what do they mean by this? What do they want?", but that isn't what I bought the course for.

This is what I worry about. Like Yarnmommy's story, they want you to CONFORM. I don't feel like they're the collaborative, warm folks that we are here. I get the feeling they are terminator knitters or something. BBBBbbbbbrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I've read quite a bit about it and I would love to do it when I have the money to spare...the swatches sound fun to me, but not the paper. :rollseyes:

As pricey as that stuff is I'd hafta floozy myself to pay for it! The membership itself might be ok though.

That's all very interesting. I'm printing out some of the information so I can relax later and read it.

But since 1987 ONLY 146 handknitters have completed the course. That's not a very big number of "graduates" since 1987 is it?

This looks like a good idea, but at the same time, somewhat frustrating. I understand that gauge is important, but I knit to relax, and this just does not sound relaxing. I do love the idea of making a notebook of swatches... samples of each yarn/pattern/needle size I use-- I think I may start doing that I always have a little bit of yarn left over to at least do a small sample for color and texture reference. I think I have a good 3" binder around here somewhere....

Just a couple of points for clarification - firstly, there are three levels to the course.
You must complete level 1 in order to begin level 2 and level 2 to start on level 3. Each level is harder than the previous one.

Secondly, there is no time frame for completing these levels.

Sometimes life just gets in the way of being able to knit.
