men who knit

tiscali have put a link to a video called 'men who knit' on their front page which is really exciting. The more it is downloaded the more attention men knitting in the UK will get.

I'm hopeing to start a boys knitting club in the near future, this community has inspired me.

men who knit a river

I got a MWK button badge, woo hoo!

I've attatched a picture of the first blue square to arrive from the MWK team. Thanks to John in San Francisco for this one.

Thanks also to everyone there who has embraced the Knit A River project, we're really excited and encouraged by your efforts....

spider pattern

can anyone help with a pattern for a 3D spider?

I've started to make one and it's going well but it would be great to have a pattern to compare it to.

I Knit London

There were almost 25 people to our knitting club on Thursday. We met at a pub called The Salisbury, St Martins lane. The pub is right in the middle of town, sandwiched between Soho and Covent Garden. We had a really good night. We got lots of blue squares - I've begun to tell people that they should work on their own projects too! But Louise told me that a blue square is great to knit in the pub - she like a little glass of wine like me!

Apart from Craig, myself and Graham there were no other men. I'm not sure there are many male knitters in the UK.

My next campaign is to find them and out them.

Knit A River

is anyone interested in a bit of charity work?

Knit A River is the best petition you'll ever knit! It's a great way to help some of the world's poorest people and share your love of knitting. It's also a great way of using the oddments of blue yarn that are cluttering up your stash.

Knit A River is a unique campaign by I Knit for Wateraid. We need knitters to produce as many blue squares as possible and send them to us so we can sew them together to make a river. The river will (hopefully) flow through London (and more) carrying the message WATER AND TOILETS FOR ALL.

There are currently 1.1 billion people who do not have access to safe water.
