I thoroughly enjoyed creating a scarf for my Networked Learning project. I have always wanted to learn how to knit and this project pushed me to do so. In my video posted below I state my learning goal from this project, which is, to learn how to knit a scarf using YouTube and other various online resources. I researched several different sources to use to learn how to knit, from written directions online to YouTube videos. I decided to use one YouTube video that I felt best explained and modeled the knitting process. Click here to see the video that I used. In my video I also explain the challenges I faced when learning how to knit. When starting the knitting process one must “cast on” the yarn onto one of the needles. This was a very hard step for me to accomplish and I had to re-watch the video several times, pause it, try to do it, then pause it again. This was frustrating and I began to feel discouraged. Once I did it and got the hang of knitting, it got easier and more enjoyable. I originally wanted to make an infinity scarf and changed my thinking once I learned what I was doing. I feel knitting is a skill that one gets good at by practicing, just like anything really. I feel I will continue to use YouTube to help me learn how to do things. I feel that there are particular basic skills that “networks” can not teach a person. I believe a young student (first grader) would have a hard time learning how to knit using YouTube. I think age and background experiences play a role in learning how to do something using a particular online resource. A young learner does not really have the skills to do this quite yet. I am glad I was able to take part in this project and gain a new skill. I am already planning my next knitting project!
