I just got my Options needles from Knit Picks and really like them. If you want to read a summary/ review/ pictorial of them you can head over to my other blog:
And yes Chris, I will join you in the Clog-along. Though I didn't know you were organizing anything like that, I did get the size 13 needles just for the clogs, so why not join in!
tiscali have put a link to a video called 'men who knit' on their front page which is really exciting. The more it is downloaded the more attention men knitting in the UK will get.
I'm hopeing to start a boys knitting club in the near future, this community has inspired me.
A few of us guys around here namely, Warren, Luke, Gabriel and myself have decided to do a Clog-Along using Fiber Trends AC-33x pattern. They're fast, easy and make a great gift for yourself or someone in that oh so up and comming Christmas season.
The plan is to start Monday June 17, and keep everyone abreast of our progress, problems and frustrations. We'll keep the cussing for our PM's. This is neither a contest nor a race merely a good ol' cyberspace knit-along.
So join us if you are interested. We would love to have as many guys who want to knit these up to be involved.
I'm going to start a group in the Niagara Peninsula in Ontario, Canada. There are many ideas under consideration, but I thought I'd ask for some feedback. Could you go to my blog and complete the poll? Thanks.
I got a MWK button badge, woo hoo!
I've attatched a picture of the first blue square to arrive from the MWK team. Thanks to John in San Francisco for this one.
Thanks also to everyone there who has embraced the Knit A River project, we're really excited and encouraged by your efforts....
can anyone help with a pattern for a 3D spider?
I've started to make one and it's going well but it would be great to have a pattern to compare it to.
Do any of you guys have girl knitter friends who would be interested in joining the sister site Women Who Knit?
I was asked on Friday if I would consider judging the knitted and crochet entries at the county fair here.
I could do it, the number of entries is not usually terribly large, and I've certainly been doing this stuff long enough. But I have no particular "professional" qualifications. I've only ever taught one class, I don't write on the subject. When I asked "Why me?" the answer was just "Because we talked it over and thought you'd be good."
The judges give written comments on every piece, which I'd be willing to do. It probably takes about half a day, and they pay you $50. (Wow.) I just keep wondering if $50 is worth getting tarred and feathered for. :)
