Knitting University

I had a friend in college whose major was clothing and textiles. I always thought that was such an odd major, but now I'm not so sure. She left college with a knowledge of textiles that was so in-depth, and her education continues to help her immensely in her job at Nike.

I don't regret my majors in English and journalism, but sometimes I wish I knew more about fibers and certain knitting techniques. I want a third degree. . . in knitting! The homework assignments sure would be a lot of fun!

It's not an actual knitting degree, but we have the next best thing for you—Craft Daily! Craft Daily offers hours of workshops from professional designers, which you can access any time of day.

Here are three classes that I would definitely include in a knitting degree curriculum!
