After blindly stumbling through what seems like a million internet sites and following link aftre link (generally to not a lot) I find myself at menwhoknit.com I suddenly feel like I've found home and it full of people as nuts about knitting as me. I am hoping that my blog proves interesting reading as I develope skills and move onto things more adventurous than scarves. Is there such a thing as a plain and simple jumper for the brave new knitter?
Firstly can I say what a fantastic site uniting knitters worldwide. Does anyone know of an alternative yarn to use instead of Rowan Big Wool? My reason for asking is because I'm a relatively new knitter and am expecting to make many mistakes on my first jumper and the thought of spending £120 ($200 ish) on a first attempt is too frightening!
