Just got back from my FIRST men's knitting retreat. It was one of the best functions I've been with. Such a group of creative and caring men! And the food was to dye for! I ate WAY too much. Also bought more yarn than I needed so lots of projects to do. I plan on attending more!
I am knitting a gauge swatch for the Sporty Pullover sweater found in the

main pattern, 17 sts and 25 rows = 4" in St st.
the main pattern is : k4 (sl1 pwise, k1, YO, psso the k1 and YO, k3) to last st, k1.

Are there any MWK members in Spokane, Washington? I will be in there from 1-14 November and would love to meet up with any men knitters who just might live there. I know it's a long shot but I understand Spokane has grown and matured considerably so my fingers are crossed for some male knitting company.
Howdy, don't know if there are any other "Viners" out there but I just wanted to share this bit of silliness with y'all. :)
OK, I have tried three times to post this so I hope it goes through this time. I have never sent a photo of my knitting (for good reason) until now as I have always been in such awe of the work that you all do. However, my neighbors just had their first baby two weeks ago and during the summer months I used one of Louis' prayer shawl patterns to whip up a baby blanket.
