In 2012, I found the perfect graduate program to round out my Arts and Humanities background, and I embarked on a venture to earn my Masters of Teaching in the Biological Sciences. "Knitting My Graduate Degree" encapsulates my 3.5 year Advanced Inquiry journey through the projects that were envisioned and knitted whilst pondering my coursework.
Knitting allows me time to be reflective, to look for patterns, and to consider the many possible outcomes–not only in my knitting, but in whatever inquiry task or puzzle I am working on. For me, the act of knitting involves contemplation, focus, and the ability to visualize; these are powerful skills to develop when one is taking on the task of making the world a kinder, safer, and healthier place.
