Plays with Yarn

A place where I can ramble about all things knitterly.

Do I want validation?

So I've been tempted off and on to send for the TKGA Master Knitter's certification program. I know I can knit fairly well, but would something like that make me better or merely frustrate me?

I guess what it comes down to is, non-knitters think I can knit well. I don't know enough knitters, but I got compliments on my tank top in the yarn store on Friday from people sitting there knitting (and people who work there). Do I just want validation from people who are good-good-good knitters? Or would I rather not have them judging me right now? Would it take the fun away from it, or add more fun as it improves my skill?
