Knitting Class Questions

So, in moments of weakness I daydream about knitting.

No real news right?

Well, there have been some great posts on having more than one project on the needle and still wanting to create something new.

New. Now that would be news. get this, I had an idea ... how about learning something? Crazypants I know.

So I took a looksee at Imagiknit's Current Class Schedule

Things that I want/need:
  • Continental Knitting
  • Fair Isle
  • Sock it to Me!
However I can hear HM telling me "you can figure out socks on your own ..."

I've always wanted to learn how to Continental Knit it looks so ... efficient. I tried to take a Knitting For Speed class at A Verb For Keeping Warm (with the  Y a r n h a r l o t !) But as you can see ... it's sold out and not meant to be (for me).

Fair Isle is just pretty and I am unashamed to admit when someone (littlesnoopy I'm looking at you ...) shows me a piece of Fair Isle, whether a knit dress or a wristband, I have to look on the Wrong Side to see it. And I am always amazed at the good work. How does that happen???

Well, if I took a class ... I bet I could figure it out! Or at least start to.

Look I am definitely not beneath paying someone some hard earned money for some of their hard learned skill sharing. It's about prioritizing. In case you haven't realized, I can't do it all. (shocking. I. know.)

Looking back at the list I realize that I've already prioritized. What do you think?

  1. You just gotta jump in and do it! Easier said that done, I know. I'd say that my last fair isle that I did wasn't as good as I had hoped, but I'm sure the baby won't care one way or the other.

    Continental knitting is what made me a knitter. I just couldn't figure out English style.

    Socks are fun to knit, but I haven't made a pair in years.
