I definetly won't be one anytime soon. I might be able to do 1 or 2"advanced" techniques but i'm still definetly
a beginner. It took me 2 months of practice to do cable designs. To me an advanced knitter can knit anything & everything. I will probably never be advanced cause the only way I can learn is from here and what is sold on DVD's. There arn't to many dvd's to learn from so i'm limited.
Just practice practice practice. You'll get there.
