This morning I joined the TKGA knit-along hosted by Sarah. Since I am a self-taught knitter I think this will be very helpful in assessing my current knowledge as well as challenging me to become a better knitter. I joined the yahoo group for masterknitters I started reading the archives and have already come away with helpful information. The main problem I foresee, is a lack of reference material. I live in a rural area and though we have a library, their knitting books are few.
