Misconceptions Of The New Male Knitter

This will be my first posting, and I am so excited to begin classes to learn how to knit. Doing a bit of research on the subject within my circle of friend's here in the bay area, I found out people are under many misconceptions on the hobby itself.

1.) "Hey I'm not 60 years old drinking ice tea in
a retirement home somewhere!"

- I have found a huge sub-category of youth and
adults that are serious knitting freaks. I own at least
3 homemade scarves, 2 wool caps and a pair of mittens
made from some good friends in there 20's. Actually
it has become quite the fad in Burning Man circles here

The Cash (mere)

Hey - i'm new to the crowd. Got a quick question for anyone who may know of a really quality worsted weight cashmere that isn't too insanely pricey? Anyone have any trusted brands or weights they want to share? Thanks.
