This ain't your grandmother's knitting group!
More testosterone than a NASCAR race, more concentration than a WWE bout... we just channel it all differently...
Come say it with yarn!
Come celebrate Presidents' Day by bringing your hanks of yarn and winding them into a tight little ball!
Bring your swifts and winders those who have 'em and bring your hanks all ye who don't.
Let's get cranking people!

Wait! There's more...
Knit NY shuts down every Friday night at 9:00 for Boyz Night. Except for our two hostesses, the fabulous Vanessa and Siobhan, No Girls Allowed. There are usually between 10-20 guys of all ages and all skill levels. It's BYOB and usually runs until at least midnight.
We have also set up a Yahoo Group for Boyz Night and upcoming field trips. Visit us at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/KnitboyzNY to get on the list.
Bring your knitting, bring your creative process. Drink some coffee. Ongoing group every Sunday beginning at 2pm.
Well, I survived my first foray to the Stitches West convention in Santa Clara this weekend. Went down there on Amtrak's Capitol Corridor since I thought CalTrain was still upgrading rails on weekends. A nice ride down with plenty of knitting time.
I don't think I've ever been around so many women in one place before... Stitches was just crawling with the fairer sex... spotted the odd long suffering husband or boyfriend carrying bags of yarn trailing behind their gals or waiting in line at the cash registers while their significant other foraged for yarn.
Another chance for the boys to get together and share. Recount Stitches purchases and inspirations...
We handed out flyers at Stitches and even sold a few buttons... so hopefully there'll be more fellas joining our group in person and also online.
Many of you will be ladden with yarn and yarns from Stitches West... come show off your bags of swag...
Coffee comfy couches and quality company... who could ask for anything more? There might be handmade truffles from Spun Sugar if you get there early... Happy Valentines!
I'm sure you've all been searching for this pattern...
