knit to fit for men

I like to teach. One of the best ways for me to learn something is to teach it; otherwise, I find it difficult to buckle down and do the homework. So when a LYS owner asked if I'd be interested in teaching "knit to fit," I decided it is time I tackle the elusive concept of fitting a sweater.

I got buttons.

Here's my sweater, finally done. I couldn't find the rhinestones. Actually finding buttons I liked was like looking for a needle in a haystack. I'm pleased with the ones my partner found, and they were cheap enough that I wouldn't cry if I found what I was searching for later on; buttons can always be redone, I figure.

Buttons! Get me buttons, quick!

Shamelessly copied from my 'other' blog, so that I can go finish my movie and make some patches for the manshawl I recently mentioned... the lovely folks at the nursing home got it caught in the bed mechanisms and ripped some nasty holes in it. (At least I know it's greatly appreciated by the one who counts!)

Hey Guys! It's been a while, I know! I'm doing well, though, nestled up in Pennsylvania now and still enjoying knitting any chance I get.

Hello again, and a men's vest report

Wow, it's been a long time since I've really spent time on here. Life happens. But don't worry; it's been good.

Westknits strikes again!

On the trip to the Men's Spring Knitting Retreat I started another shawl by Stephen West.

To steal Kerry's words, "I recently discovered grey as a color and I love it." Couldn't have said it better.

For one night, we were the majority!

Last night was knit night at Borders. I'm pretty used to being the token male in knitting circles, but recently there's been another guy.
