Top-Down Raglan

Here is a top-down raglan knit in Noro "Kureyon". This is a good way to use self-striping yarns, as there is no matching of color bands necessary and it has a balanced final look.

A little spinning on Sunday

I just wanted to share some of my spinning. It is Suri alpaca and it is like a dream. I almost forgot how to spin, but that is ridiculous, there is muscle memory and that will come back as soon as you spend some time spinning.

the recent poll on knitting cost got me thinking...

I am what some might call cheap. I prefer words like "thrifty" or even "frugal" (got to bring that word back into use).
Knitting is no different, why waste money on name brand stuff?
Right now my favorite sticks (needles) are homemade bamboo DPN's


Recyling a vest for my younger son from third grade into a sweater for his high school senior year. Since he now is 6'3", I added the yarn I had bought at the same time for a sweater for his brother, which I never did knit. The boys chose the yarn, Marr Haven, themselves when we visited the farm near Allegan, MI.

Men Who Knit in Los Angeles?

(insert the sound of a pin dropping here)

Come on, I know I'm not the only one. Any of you fellow Angelenos (as opposed to Angelenas) interested in meeting up for some social knitting?

I'm in Echo Park, but I wouldn't be opposed to driving, say, 15 miles to get in some all-male knitting action once a month. Anyone? Anyone?

The Measure Of A Man

In my travels through the halls of the venerable Fashion Institute of Technology, a sad truth became apparent. I suspected that the corporate committee decisions regarding fit on a man were, and are, almost criminal. Mannekins are in abundance, all in womans size 6 or men's 40.
