Good evening to all Men Who Knit. Well, it's evening over here right now. I just joined and looking forward to participating in this group.
A little about me...
I started crochet and knitting in 2010 - just before my last deployment to Afghanistan with the Army. My wife started teaching our boys how to crochet, so I decided to join in on the family activity. I learned how to crochet, but then realized that I really liked the way knitting looked over the crochet, so I purchased numerous videos and learned how to knit.
I did some knitting during that deployment, and subsequently retired from the Army on Jan. 1st, 2012, and am now back in Afghanistan as a defense contractor. We retired out of Fort Bragg, NC and now live in Fayetteville, NC.
I have been doing many hours of knitting while over here, and have completed 3 hats, 2 scarves and a drawstring bag in just the past two months, and am currently knitting a Color Affection (CA) shawl for my wife, and my next project will be the Far Away, So Close (FASC) shawl by Carina Spencer.
Attached is one of the scarves that I made for my brother, the WIP of the CA, and what my FASC will look like when done. I purchased the same exact colors dyed by the same exact dyer (Julie at selahshop.com).
