No more hat fails!

I've knitted a few items that have turned out pretty good but I'm embarrassed to say that I haven't mastered the basic beanie. Since my formal instruction consisted of "measure head, cast on, knit, decrease at the crown" I think I may have missed a trick or two. I've searched through patterns too, but still wasn't trusting them to give me what I want.

Is there a place where men meet to knit and chat as so many women do? We live in Upper Bucks County, Pa.

Hello and Happy New Year!

I just wanted to say a quick "hello" to everyone out there. I ran into this site a few weeks ago and enjoyed reading everyone's posts so much that I just HAD to join. I've been knitting on and off since I was about 7 years old and crocheting on and off since I was about 17 (more 'off' than 'on' so I'm still a novice at both arts lol).

Soliciting Sock Suggestions

I would like to begin making socks using circular needles. I know that DPN patterns can be adapted, but does anyone know of any patterns out there written specifically for circular needles that a novice might be able to understand? I appreciate it.

a long, slow knit

One evening last summer as the fog got sucked in, thick and cold, through the Golden Gate and the foghorns bellowed low and stubbornly into the oncoming mist like giant, 3-story cows in the distance, I picked up some jute gardening twine from deep in my stash and started double-knitting this rug.

I have complete the Horseshoe Cap design by Janet Wray with the fibre I received at the Guilds Christmas Gift Exchange. If you are interested there is more on this at my blog.
