In the last week I have signed up for both the Master Knitter Level I the Master of Advanced Crochet Stitches & Techniques certifications. I received the MKLI instructions first and, being impatient, dove right it. I tried the first swatch and it was a humiliating experience. I had no idea I was such a crappy knitter. My purling is WAY bigger than my knitting resulting in atrocious ribbing and hideous selvages. Dammit.
That being the case, I put the damn thing aside and picked up the MACST material. Success! Ten of the 47 swatches are done and I don't think I will have any problems completing the rest this week.
