I have been new to menwhoknit for about two weeks. I have been a knitter since about age 15 (> 30 years) when I had a wonderful art teacher who taught me how to knit. My projects have been fairly simple such as sweaters, and afghans where one color is involved and simple stitches. I did however, made my first pair of socks on DPN and they turned out great. I don't have children, so the only time I get to make baby clothes is when my partner has another grandchild. I'm currently working on booties, cap and a baby afghan. I have been looking through the gallery here and I'm so impressed with the projects you guys have made. This definitely gives me the courage to do more challenging projects. Hopefully, I will be able to start a knitting club/circle in my area soon.
