Just about done with the striped section of the Color Affection Shawl, and then I'm onto the short rows section. Stripes are more subtle with a variegated yarn. If I knit another Color Affection, I'll likely stick with solids/semi-solids for the stripes to stand out more. But the colors are certainly pleasing to the eye.
Well, last time I said I would post pictures of a few other things I made as Christmas gifts. It always takes me forever to go through the laborious task of transferring photos from the digital camera onto the computer.
Okay, thinking about checking out knitting socks, since the guys here say it's so easy. However, I'm looking for opinions and advice as to yarns, and dpns, or circs and magic loop.
Here's my sweater, finally done. I couldn't find the rhinestones. Actually finding buttons I liked was like looking for a needle in a haystack. I'm pleased with the ones my partner found, and they were cheap enough that I wouldn't cry if I found what I was searching for later on; buttons can always be redone, I figure.
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...
Guys, I have been on a roll cleaning up my stash of yarns. Given the sub-zero temps lately, all of us are trying to stay warm. I have knitted some cowls for friends AND have managed to make a huge dent in my stash of yarn. Color me happy. Recipients have been friends, family, shut-ins, old, young, and all sizes.
Happy knitting and hope all is well with you!
Hello fellow knitter! I'm super excited that I found this website and don't know why I didn't think to google "Men who knit" ages ago! Alas, I found the site and happy to be apart of this community. I'm posting in beginners because I've been knitting for a while now but its never really extended beyond dish cloths and slippers.
Good Afternoon All,
I have never ever attempted to do a knitted afghan before. The pattern was from an old Leisure Art leaflet from...get this....1974!!!!!!! It's called the Classic Ripple Afghan. I have knitted Leisure Art models for the last five years (mostly small projects like socks, scarves, etc.) and was asked to crochet an afghan using Red Heart Soft yarn.
The class went very well today. Had about 7 people of course all women. But I seemed to fit in well. And I did some new thins like long casting on. I found out today that i was doing knitted casting(never knew it had a name, mom taught me)
I will have pics of my project on latter. Right now its a wonderful red yarn blend of alpaca, silk and nylon.
