Satin needed for Baby Blanket

I have been making a baby blanket using Baby's First Lion Brand Yarn. It's a chunky yarn made up of 55% Acrylic and 45% Cotton. I chose to do this simple pattern that is more reminiscent of the tried-and-true washcloth pattern that has been used for hundreds of years. The parents like think simple.

Carolina Fiber Festival-Men's Fiber Meet Up and Shameless Promotion

Great News! The Carolina Fiber Festival will be held on May 18-20, 2012 at the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, NC. I attended 2 years ago and had a great time. This year they are in the beginning planning to have a Men's Fiber Meet Up at the Festival! I think this was a great idea (I simply mentioned it in a message to the coordinator).

What comes around goes around…and comes back around again

A week or two ago I saw a young woman sporting a beehive hairdo. This woman was maybe in her mid 20’s and it wasn’t any disheveled Winehouse-esque look either. She was quite well dressed and her beehive was well done and perfectly in place.

Cowl for my sister

Just finished a cowl for my sister. Used the pattern Elis (free pattern on Ravelry)...took a few tries to get the indian cross stitch correct, but I am pleased with the results. Here is a pic of it while blocking...looks better draped around the neck. Hope she likes it!

Harry Potter Illusion

Just a quick post before I head into work this Black Friday. Earlier in the week I finished the Harry Potter illusion project I've been working on. I stumbled across the pattern for this project a while back and thought it a fantastic idea: what better way to commemorate the magic of Harry Potter than by a "magical" knitting project. I absolutely love sharing this project with people.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I just wanted to take an opportunity today to give my thanks to all men who knit no matter where you are. Thank you for your devotion to the craft, for sharing your knowledge, and for supporting and inspiring men everywhere to be creative with yarn and needles.

Three Weeks

Have been knitting for three weeks now and on my fourth hat. Didn't know a thing about knitting, so went on You Tube and found some basic videos and got started. Which led me to Knit Picks. Which led me to this web page. Nice to know other men who knit, and are willing to help others. Been quilting for ten years and time to start something new, knitting is it.
