I want to be certified

As a knitting instructor after having completed a w/e course @ F.I.T. I have to do 30 hours voluntary teaching to be fully certified

I'll clock in a few hours at the Knit Out in Union Square next month.
The instructor was great, Arnetta Kenney. Yes, I was the only guy!
I'm going to sign up for a 6 week course with Arnetta to knit that sweater I've put off making for lack of confidence.

Web Links Are Back

I got the web link section working again, but unfortunately had to trash all of the links.  It's pretty sparse now, but I know all you internet-enabled knitters have amazing bookmark collections and I encourage you to post your favorites on the site for everyone's benefit.  I'll be adding more, as well!

New book in the works!

Here's a great opportunity to be involved in a new book!

Annie Modesitt (the knitting heretic) and Drew Emborsky (the crochet dude) are writing a book called Men Who Knit (and the Dogs Who Love Them).

They are looking for stories about men who knit!  THAT'S YOU!!!

They are also looking for knitters to help knit the sample sweaters and other projects for the book.

All the information you need is here:

Knitting for Katrina survivors

 Hi guys

I have a couple of baby blankets that I knitted earlier this year & some cute Ann Norling hats. I want to donate them to the folks in need down south. I'm waiting to hear back from Americares as to where to send them. I can't be the only one among us who has finished and/or near finished projects that ould be of use.
If any of you want to support this please let me know and I will pass on the information as and when I get it.
best,
Martin

Mentioned in article

I'm sure this is old news for most, but Men Who Knit was mentioned in an article in the recent manly issue of Knitty.

 
The good word comes from David Demchuk's article Knit Like a Man.
 
If you haven't yet read David's article, be sure to check it out!
