So it's like this, guys. A friend asked me to knit something for an elderly relative in assisted living, so I knitted her a big cowl, which led to me to puttering around with some stash yarn and big needles. Well, after a few martinis, some bulky cowls appeared and seemed to catch the eye of some female friends.
A friend on FB had sent me this model. Couldn't resist to get the kneedles out and clicked away
Hey Guys! It's been a while, I know! I'm doing well, though, nestled up in Pennsylvania now and still enjoying knitting any chance I get.
I was recently asked by about 30 people to knit scarves. Being that I am neither fast, nor rich (no one offered to pay) I only agreed to knit a scarf for the one in 30 who mattered the most, My sister. In the spirit of posting projects for the rest of you to see...Sorry guys, it is not one of Mark's AWESOME sweaters...here is my very simple scarf....
Well, if you don't toot your own horn from time to time, there may not be any music at all. So there. ;-)
I first published this pattern to the GLBT knit-list (http://www.glbt-knit.com/ ) in late 2002. After unexpectedly coming across a hard copy of the post, I went over the pattern and decided it had to be redone.
Does anyone know where I can get this pattern? It looks like it might be crochet. Since I don't crochet, I would need it "translated" as well. Ideas?
Seattle Men Who Knit is alive and well in 2013!
Our first meetings after the 2011 Men's Knitting Retreat have grown, and we are now meeting 2nd and 4th Thursdays at Elliott Bay Cafe on Capitol Hill (10th Avenue between Pike and Pine, one block east of Broadway, in the back of Elliott Bay Booksellers) from 7-9 PM.
Here is more quick knits, for those really cold climates. But I do think he needs a scarf.
Here is a mitten some of you may like to try. It is knit up quickly, and should be quite warm and toasty. What do you think?
