I've got everything printed out and ready to go. All written work is complete, all swatches are knit and blocked and labeled. I've checked all references (to make sure anything I cited is indeed listed as a reference).
The program required 17 swatches and a mitten. Each swatch is accompanied by a page in the binder with cited references for the techniques, some required writing instructions or a paragraph about the technique. One swatch required writing a pattern so that another knitter could make the swatch.
A 2-4 page report on blocking and care of hand knits with references.
22 questions answered and cited; some questions having 2-5 sub questions.
I gave myself a deadline of 6 months to complete this Level of the program. I received my instruction packet on 6/8/14 ... and its done as of 11/28/14!! I took two fairly large breaks where I didn't do any additional work on the program (4-6 weeks).
I did not keep up on blogging about it - mainly because I took all the photos of the swatches on the same day, LOL!
I learned a tremendous amount. Especially about tension and different increase and decrease techniques. I've never had any real issues with tension in my knitting, but I still learned some techniques to improve it.
