Here is my recently completed Triangular shawl. It is a Lion Brand yarn and pattern and my daughter is modeling it.
HI, everybody - I'm starting a class tomorrow. No, not taking ... teaching: I'll be instructing a class based upon my Split Reed pattern as shown in the "Think Outside the Sox" book from XRX.
This is just too strange for words - everything I have knit to date has been pretty much a shade of grey and for men (with one exception of the green cotton top).
Just finished my first helmet liner. Need to make a couple more before I send them out. I used a blend of 85% Merino and 15% Baby Camel. Very warm and soft.
I have been new to menwhoknit for about two weeks. I have been a knitter since about age 15 (> 30 years) when I had a wonderful art teacher who taught me how to knit.
In Provincetown for the week (and for the first time) enjoying the thrills of Carnival week and happily knitting away at a few new projects.
I wanted to share a few pictures with you all. I bought this simple canvas messenger bag at a local festival to carry around all of my purchases of the day.
