Today I wrap up my learning project.
Cue the excitement.
All joking aside, I learned a lot. Just how much you ask? Well, Let’s take a little walk down memory lane.
For my first post, I started out by explaining my first adventure to Micheals to get all my supplies for knitting. During this post I talked about how crazy knitting is and how there are literally thousands of different yarns, and everyone walks around the isles like the Yoda’s of knitting, talking about needle gages and yarn styles.
In my second post, I moved on to write about my failures with knitting. I remember feeling very frustrated at this point with my knitting. Despite my best efforts nothing I was trying to do was working and I felt like every time I would try something new I learned from the video’s I was watching, it would fail. During this time I learned that the process is more important than the product.
Week 3 was a breakthrough week, for sure! This is the week I learned that knitting is backwards if your learning from a right-handed person. This was Mind Blowing and made me feel immensely better about my failures.
I peaked in my fourth post because I actually knitted something. I, Madisson knitted an entire scarf this week, it was breaking news. And good news I actually wore the scarf out in public and no one said anything mean about it.
In my 5th week, I talked about the whos’ who in the knitting world, in terms of blogs. Being that the internet is my primary source of learning. I looked at these blogs a lot of inspiration.
In my sixth post, I challenged myself to make my first video. Growing up I watched a lot of what’s in my bag videos, so I chose to make my own version of the video with all my knitting things! I used iMovie for the first time and found it took me a really long time to make the small intro. But once I figured out how it works I can see how it would be easy to use in the future.
In my 7th post, I broke down the steps to follow if you’re looking to get into the looming game like I did! I used Amazon as my main source and showed everyone where to go and what products I used and found worked well.
In my 8th post, I got real about how knitting a scarf and a toque are two VERY different things. At first, I felt ashamed that I didn’t complete my toque but I had promised myself that I would be honest with everyone about what I was doing. I learned that using circle looms is actually quite a bit different than using the Zippy. Figuring out how to make the torque to get smaller proved to be harder then I thought.
For my ninth post, I created a tutorial for how to use the Zippy loom. I found during my time of learning that I didn’t really find a tutorial I found super easy to follow. I wanted to create one that made more sense and was simpler. I felt like I wasted a lot of time watched pointless intros and they didn’t spend enough time actually explaining the important part.
And this post marks my LAST POST for my learning project and actual last assignment I ever submit for my degree!
