Intarsia? I hardly even know her! (and other stuff)

Punkfairy came up with an awesome suggestion for a knitting project: a pair of boxers or briefs. I think I shall research on making one as a hat.

Pattern for boxers

Hey, just wondering if anyone knows of a pattern for boxers (or any other guys underwear, actually)? Been looking around and haven't really seen anything...

Custom Intarsia Designs

So, I've been really fascinated by graphic knits...especially after seeing the book by the same title. But how do you make your own, I thought. I think I have found an easy way...finally!

BAMBOO NEEDLES

With the latest poll I see that Bamboo Needles are very popular. I myself voted for the good old fashion plastic needles...

I am curious what are the pros and cons of Bamboo needles?

The Knitting Man(ual)

At last my copy of the Knitting Man(ual) has arrived. It contains garments for men, mostly classic stuff with a modern twist. Some lovely jumpers (sweaters) but I don't like the boat-necks.

Ouch!

The faster I knit, the more my hands hurt. I must say I have improved my speed, a lot!
