Ok, so last Saturday one of my co-workers/friend/down the street neighbor called me in a panic. She was practically screaming into the phone (well, maybe not screaming, but it was definately more than a whisper and less than a Tarzan yell), anyhow, she tells me:
“I’m coming to your house I have a knitting EMERGENCY!!! I have to get this blanket done by 5pm (it was 10 a.m.) and I’ve messed it up somehow!!!”
At that moment I knew I was a knitter, a true blue, green, red, yellow, purple and what ever other color yarn I could get my hands on knitter. Because not only did I know it but someone else did, and thought that I was good enough to come to for help. (which :happydance: I was actually able to do, much to my supprise)
People have said “oh that’s pretty” or “oh, I wish I could do that”, but since I’ve just now after two years ventured into knitting in the round, and finally made something other than a scarf or a blanket (ohhh :oops: , a purse…I’m branchin’ out <-- please note the self sarcasm) I never really thought of myself as a full fledged knitter. Ya know?
I’ll tell you what the feeling of wow, I’m passed the Superduper Extreame beginner level, and I am now just an Extreame Beginner. I’m moving up in the ranks!
So I was wondering, when did y’all realize where you stood in the ranks of knitters?
