Meeting others

I had the joy of meeting one of the members on this website this Sunday.
He just happened to be in my neck of the woods and asked to meet with me. I was very flattered about it.
He was a very creative man and very kind and warm to talk to. We must have talked about knitting(him sharing one of his patterns with me) and my travels to the Netherlands last year.

Midwest Fall Men's Retreat review

I am just winding down from the retreat this past weekend. It normally takes a few days to come back to "earth" so to say.
The Midwest Fall Men's Retreat is not one of your glorified ones of workshops etc. Its very relaxed. Primary interest is a great group of men who share their love for the craft.

Conductive Yarn

My son showed me a pair of gloves he got today and conductive yarn was used in the fingers so the wearer can use a cell phone without taking off the gloves. I am going to do some research on this and write an article about it. I was wondering if any of you guys have ever used conductive yarns? If so, what did you make?
Thanks.

Mark
