“Knitting Superstar” E-Book Sneak Peek
Here is a preview from the introduction of my new video e-book, “Become a Knitting Superstar” The Ultimate Video Knitting Guide, available to KnitFreedom video newsletter subscribers at a huge discount starting tomorrow!
What Does It Mean to Be a Knitting Superstar?
A Knitting Superstar is fearless. Equipped with curiosity and confidence, she tries new things, because she is unafraid to make mistakes. She is acclimated to the uncomfortable feeling of messing up, of being confused, or stuck, and knows how to move through it, and come out a better knitter.
His garments usually look great on him and on his loved ones, because he is knowledgeable about yarn and the different choices he has when shopping for yarn. He knows how to measure himself and create projects that fit just right.
She’s comfortable finding answers and getting inspiration from the many resources that are available – maybe she surfs Ravelry, answering and asking questions in the forums. Maybe she’s made friends at her local yarn store (LYS) or her local knitting group. She knows the answers are out there, waiting to be discovered (even by herself)!
A Knitting Superstar is an expert at making mistakes, as well as fixing them. He knows that a learning opportunity is behind every misstep, and that only through challenging his abilities can he grow as a knitter and as a person. He is also a great help to others – a calming, reassuring voice when his friends have questions and need knitting advice.
She knows how to set herself up for knitting success – how to measure gauge, pick the right size and shape of garments for her body, and how to add the right finishing touches to any project, so that it looks professional.
He can knit in the round, two-at-a-time, in fact – from the top-down, from the bottom-up, and every other which way, without getting lost or tangled. His projects go fast, because he’s streamlined his knitting technique. The horizons of knitting are open to him, because he knows how to learn.
Sound good? That’s going to be you, and it’s going to be awesome!
