Did everyone notice that we now have 500 registered users on MenWhoKnit.com!!!! Woo-HOoo!!!!
I just wanted to take a minute to mark this milestone and to recognize Darrel for his work in launching the site, maintaining it, and constantly adding improvements.
I also wanted to say a big thanks to all of you who have registered on the site and who keep coming back. This site would be nothing without an active membership. We're lucky to have members who are not only active, but who are inquisitive, talented, supportive, funny, prolific, passionate, adventurous, etc, etc. I can think of dozens of other adjectives, but I'll just close this up by saying that my knitting life has been enriched by the friends I've made here.
I finished this up last week and gave it the wash and block over the weekend. I finally got around to taking a picture to post on it. The sweater is the Sampler Sweater from Simply Beautiful Sweater For Men. The grey yarn I purchased last year at our knitting guild's annual yarn auction. It came in 2 very large skeins and was unmarked. It is a single ply, loosely spun worsted weight wool.
is anyone interested in a bit of charity work?
Knit A River is the best petition you'll ever knit! It's a great way to help some of the world's poorest people and share your love of knitting. It's also a great way of using the oddments of blue yarn that are cluttering up your stash.
Knit A River is a unique campaign by I Knit for Wateraid. We need knitters to produce as many blue squares as possible and send them to us so we can sew them together to make a river. The river will (hopefully) flow through London (and more) carrying the message WATER AND TOILETS FOR ALL.
There are currently 1.1 billion people who do not have access to safe water.
