I've started a third scarf as a gift; one of the many I hope to churn out by December. It's Sept now, so I hope it's okay to bring up the holidays amongst the guys here. See my blog for a pix.
Mike, thanks for your lace tutorial, I am relatively new to lace knitting but my partner, Clive, has been knitting Shetland cobweb lace shawls for years. If the garment design and colour is appropriate, I don't see why men shouldn't wear it.
This winter I have knitted myself a lacy design scarf which was very comforting around my neck on cold, windy days, and one of my many WIP is a lace design by Sharon Miller from Heirloom Knitting in a wool yarn by Margaret Stove, the New Zealand lace guru.
