TKGA Master Knitting Program

I got my instructions for the The Knitting Guild of America (TKGA) Master Knitting Program yesterday.

I've been wanting to take the program for awhile now. It is a 3 level program, with each level requiring you to knit swatches, answer questions, do reports, and knit patterns. It looks like a really comprehensive course.

In the first level in which I am enrolled, there are 16 swatches to knit along with 17 questions related to the swatches. Plus there is a two page report on Blocking and the Care of knits that you have to write. And there is one hat project to knit.

There are some great articles geared towards the Masters Program in the TKGA's Cast On magazine that have been archived on the member section of the site. Just reading those, I've already learned a few things like duplicate stitch and increasing in ribbing. Can't wait to try them out!
