TKGA MHK update (sort of)

It's been a while...like, since May, that I've done any knitting on my Level 1.

First, I had to block my first three swatches. OK, that worked although the seed stitch swatch was the only one of the three I was really pleased with! Then as the swatches lay drying, DIP came to mess around in the renovation. (If you saw 2 of my dining room walls, then you'd know why I said 'mess around'.) Couldn't concentrate with him here. That lasted all Summer except for camp time. Then other projects. Then the arm/wrist/hand dilemma.

Several days ago I saw on Ravelry that the Level 1 instructions had been updated as of January 6. Oh, my. Well, that's OK because I haven't knit more swatches nor have I worked on the research since June. Today I emailed TKGA for the updated materials.

The hand in the picture here? I'm using it right now as the project pic for the Ravelry projects page. On a trip to Wisconsin from Arizona about ten years ago, we stopped at Mt. Rushmore where I'd found this and a mountain sheep ornament for the sheep tree.

I guess that is one of the ufo projects for the new year to be work on, school.Yes home redos are not good with school work to be done.

Thanks for your post on my blog about the weather! I think weather is kind of fascinating--and know that lots of people faced our enthusiastic move to Winnipeg with some weird dread. (like, isn't that weather awful up there?!) I always appreciate your notes and thoughts!

Gee...and I had all my swatches knit but let my membership lapse...sigh.

Hmmm...maybe I should see if they won't charge me Level 1 again if I renew...then we could cheer each other on...buddy system.

Just read your comments and thought I would send you a message. First, I have just completed Level II MHP and am waiting for the results. However, it is never too late to pick it up and finish. Level I has stayed pretty much the same for quite awhile according to Arenda Holladay, co-chair of TKGA. Two weeks after I received Level II, my mom died and that set me back for months. Mom was my mentor, knitting teacher, and friend. I finally got back to work and finished, but it was not easy. If you want Level I help or have questions, I may be able to help. However, there is a group on the TKGA website, here on Ravelry, that seems very inspiring, check it out. Knittynut : )
