I taught my sister to knit.... (((help and question)))
She's almost 9..... I taught her to knit in about 40 minutes, and now she's happily garter stitching along.

The help:

I really really realllllllllyyyy want to do the Masters knitting program. Really. But I don't have $300 right now. Just a minor technicality... lol

But I liked Presents Knits idea of designing their own masters program. BUT her program is a little too.... hmm, well, my family is REALLY conservative. And not everything on her list would go over so well.

So would you all help me design a masters program for myself and to teach my little sister?

Jan I am pretty sure this is what she is talking about.

Couldn't you just do everything on her list that you and your family would be OK with. You could definitely find other patterns to substitute for the ones that don't work for you. I'm sure between us and a Ravelry search you could find great subs!

Why would anyone spend $300 on that program?

Making up your own list sounds like a lot more fun ... and cheaper.

Also, maybe I missed something, but what does knitting anything on that list have to do with being conservative? Just wondering...

I don't see anything that would be unacceptable there.

Like tank tops, flashy scarfs, that kind of thing. I know most people wouldn't have a problem with things like that, but my family is somewhere between super super super conservative Baptist and Mennonite. Thanks for the ideas!

Well you could substitute a little. Make vests (worn over shirts or blouses) instead of tank tops, and plain scarves with different stitch patterns - lace might not go over, but would cables be acceptable? And for lace, maybe curtains or a tablecloth instead of something to be worn.

Great ideas Suzy!
Would a tank top under something still be unacceptable? I'm not trying to get you in trouble or anything just trying to understand a little better. I am in the process of knitting a Sitcom chic for my mom and was thinking how cute it would be with a matching tank under it.
