What size of project(s) most captures your interest
Do you work your own patterns or do you use patterns? What is your process for getting gauge.
Do you have favorite needles? Types, sizes, styles?
What is your favorite hack or trick that you think may be a bit of a cheat?
What’s your favorite yarn weight, fiber, and yarn twist (or any of those)?
Do you doubt your knitting as you work on it? What causes you the most anxiety?
First Becoming the Knitter/Designer You Want to Be
First Becoming the Knitter/Designer Chat Is an introduction and I will be giving you some food for thought. This will be approximately 1 hour and I will give some material to get the conversation rolling. I will provide documents as needed.
First Becoming Chat
You can come via video (I’ll have lipstick on!) or just come to chat (no video). Sign up to get the log-in information. Use any device or computer. Come with answers to the questions on the first tab. We’ll see where we go from there. I want to get beyond “I love to knit” or “I love to design” and get to “what do I want from knitting/design”.
The invitation to the GoToMeeting login is the pdf you will get the link to after purchasing this.
Future Becoming Chats are every other week and cost $10 to join in. You can get a package for a bit of a discount. Also on Payhip if you are outside of North America.
Why Becoming Chat?
I love talking about knitting, and yarn, and what knitting brings to our lives. For me knitting is a metaphor for life, but we aren’t always paying attention to it that way. However you want your knitting to reflect your life, let’s do it!
It is a challenge to be creative person, or to feel passionately about something that non-knitters see as just a hobby. Whether you are a passionate knitter or a designer you are seeking a way to make knitting a fulfilling part of your life. I want to help you figure out a path toward that. Being creative and pursuing your passion is 1) not a straight path, 2) not as easy as it may look, and 3) really hard to remain focused on.
Topics for 2021 TBA!
Those are my thoughts. While I may think I know, I really want to know what you think and want. I’ve been on my path, well this knitting specific path, since 1993. I’ve learned a thing or two along the way.
Outside North America?
I am using PayHip because they do VAT! You can sign up there and get exactly what I have here in terms of downloads and information. So click over to there. I will likely figure out how to put the button here, but until then just use the link.
I also will be starting a one-on-one consulting service, Jill Wolcott Knits Studio Sessions. You can set time with me to help you solve issues, professional, specifically knitting, design related, or other life-related advice. The first 15 minutes are free, then you sign up for additional blocks of time at $12.50/15 min. I will also do small groups (you put the group together) and will give you a quote on cost.
