Does anyone have a suggestion as to a good stitch dictionary for beginners? I think I've pretty much mastered the garter stitch and would like to try some new ones. I know there are a lot of good resources online, but I don't always have Internet access when I'm knitting, so a book of stitches would be great to have. (Plus, I just like books.) Thanks for your help!
Thank you for letting me join. I am new to knitting and have not completed any projects at this time. I am looking forward to the inspiration from all of you.

Is anyone interested in having a men-only swap? Not jock straps, but anything depending on a questionnaire that we fill out. Maybe with a $10 or $20 limit.
I’m involved in two swaps on knittingparadise.com and thought it might be interesting to swap with other men.
Basically, depending on questions that the swapper answers, the partner picks a bunch of items to swap with them.
Has anyone had a problem with the left lower front section. My pattern reads as follows:
SETUP 2X2 RIB (WS): K2, P2
ROW 1 (RS): P2, K2
Work even for [#] rows ending with a wrong side row
Begin following Front chart for your size here.
As far as I can tell from the picture there are not [#+] rows until you start the Diagonal Cables. Any suggestions?
Just read Scotty's entry about his boss' reaction to knitting. Here is another one to share with all of you:
I am a newbie to knitting. Would love to find a local knitting group in LA. I am in Culver City so anything in West LA would be appreciated.
Am working with a LYS to investigate and maybe form a men's knitting group in my area.
We currently have a group called Pints and Purls that meets at the local brewpub on monday nights to well have some pints and purls. We have seen a few guys show up now and again. Sometimes they are just come alongs with their wifves/girlfriends etc.
Years ago when i first started knitting I found it to be most default often losing count of vary simple pattern repeat like in a rib stitch. At the time I did not know why but it frustrated me to no end and was one of the reasons I gave up on knitting.
Is there a place where men meet to knit and chat as so many women do? We live in Upper Bucks County, Pa.
