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.)
Hey guys I am 31 years old and gay hoping to find knitting groups in my area.
In my knitting re-enactments of exciting but destructive events in history, I am hard at work uncovering under-explored hand-knit garments and accoutrements of victors and victims. My latest...the Steppes of Asia. Mongol patterns are so hard to find!
I love the look of this shirt and was instantly attracted to it when I saw it in the Knitting Tradition magazine. I wanted to make it bigger then the pattern...Well I succeed in that. I made it to big for me which of course delighted my partner. It's to big for him but looks "comfy" instead of ridiculous. He doesn't care as long as he gets to something I made.
Reading a recent blog entry about knitting and thinking got me...cogitating. What makes this activity so engaging for me? What draws me to committing time and energy to this craft? What muse stirs as I stir the knitting soup?
To address this question, without judgement, rancor or disbelief, I wonder aloud...
