Confessions of a Left-Hand Knitter

Exploring the Possibilities

Knitting University

on October 4, 2013

I was reading knitting daily this morning, which  presented a great article on textile and design degrees. She talks about how she always thought a textile degree was odd; however, after years of knitting is envious of the degree. She then goes on to wish for a second degree in knitting. I thought this idea was brilliant and I would total get a degree in knitting.

I didn’t think a textile degree was odd, growing up in Philadelphia you encounter many textile designers and fashion experts. At one point, in my early teens, I considered becoming a fashion designer. I was so drawn to the concept of designing something new and actually completing the craft. I almost went to a high school specializing in design ; however, opted for music at an art school. It wasn’t until college I started to redesign with yarn.

Which also brings up another topic… free flow knitting. Is it possible? Does anyone free knit? I know when I crochet, I don’t need a pattern to create something… that how I designed my yoga mat bag. I just started crocheting and it formed. I wonder if anyone can or has done something like this in Knitting. I always wanted to free knit; however, it seemed to be more involved in the designing process than the actual construction. Hum… thoughts! Enjoy.
