Men learing to knit video

Here is another men knitting YouTube video I think you can all relate to. This video certainly brought back lots of memories when I was beginning to learn to knit. I can remember being as awkward and clueless in the early days; it just doesn't show the many times I threw the bloody knitting mess across the room! I think I could have named this “I laughed.

WIP

I started this last summer but put it away as I had other things to do, and of course because it is full of nupps (ugh) it was an easy decision to put it aside lol. It is called "The Greta Garbo Shawl"

Warren MacNeil - Man Knitter

This evening I came to the place of knitting the heel flap on the socks I'm knitting. I decided I was too tired to start it so I passed some time looking through Google. I came across this YouTube video about a man knitter in the US. I enjoyed it a lot and wanted to share it with others. I think that Warren is a great representative for us guy knitters. Have a look and enjoy!

ARG!

After about two and a half weeks of working on this cowl I finished all the stitching and had only two things left to do. 1. Pick up the provisional cast on stitches and 2. graft the two ends together. Well, I started the project with a 2x2 rib knit and did not pick up the stitches correctly.

Kitting and the Dyslexic

Years ago when i first started knitting I found it to be most default often losing count of vary simple pattern repeat like in a rib stitch. At the time I did not know why but it frustrated me to no end and was one of the reasons I gave up on knitting.

A New Beginning

Hi. Happy New Year. Hope all of you had a good holiday. On Monday, I start Prosthetic Technician classes at the local community college. Knitting will take a back seat to my school work and new training. I have to put the yarn physically out of reach. There are about half a dozen things I'd like to knit and techniques to learn and practice.

Hi everyone

In every dark cloud there is a silver lining

Hi guys,
After tinking my last scarf...i got the idea to work with different color combination. Since my project has been with one color. So I took on the challenge and with a suggestion from a fellow MWK member, Mark, I set out on an attempt to learn Intarsia. I made a small swatch but I think I have raised my skill level a half notch or so... :-)
