(insert the sound of a pin dropping here)
Come on, I know I'm not the only one. Any of you fellow Angelenos (as opposed to Angelenas) interested in meeting up for some social knitting?
I'm in Echo Park, but I wouldn't be opposed to driving, say, 15 miles to get in some all-male knitting action once a month. Anyone? Anyone?
In my travels through the halls of the venerable Fashion Institute of Technology, a sad truth became apparent. I suspected that the corporate committee decisions regarding fit on a man were, and are, almost criminal. Mannekins are in abundance, all in womans size 6 or men's 40.
Whenever I hear the term "oldy BUT goldy", I reach for my revolver. Usually, to me anyway, it means what you hated then, you can hate now. Remember what-ever-the-hell-hiz-name-wuz? Almost as sad a thought as the poor boys and girls who haven't read, listened to, or seen anything created before 2005. You know...vintage stuff.
I've made a bit of progress on my new raglan sweater by Staci at VeryPink.com
No need to explain further. The victor and victim theme ensues.

The Lover Tank by Sarah Briscoe
What could be more tropical than a guayabera? I found this pattern in a fit of pique over the lack of summer-weight patterns for men. The original pattern was in a murky size of M/L...meaning wouldn't fit anybody.
Good Morning All,
Hope you're all having a fantastic weekend. Spent yesterday repotting some of my bonsai in the morning, had a nice lunch with my wife at our one of our favorite spots and then quilt shop hopped in the afternoon and finished it off with a quick trip to my local yarn shop. We then spent a cozy evening in front of the fireplace together.
The book, "Knitting Masterpieces" by Ruth Herring and Karen Manners, was way ahead of its time. I discovered it in a dusty pile of books on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn...and fell in love. These gals lovingly and with great vision charted 20 art masterpeices from Standing Bison cave drawings to...well, to this iconic image of my youth.
This is what is on my needles. I am in knitting bliss.
I'm excited to announce my latest pattern - a scarf in Quince and Company's upcoming e-book: Scarves, Etc. 2013.
It's the only "guy" scarf in the collection.
Check it out here on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/caden
It'll be available for purchase/download on 3/5/2013.
Any of you planning to be in Yosemite National Park during Memorial Day Weekend? Yosemite, it turns out, is an awesome place to knit. (I blogged about it here.)
