menknit.net zine?

hey all,

i stumbled into the inaugural issue of menknit.net's webzine from fall of 2005, but can't find any other issues. the first one came through a link on a ravelry pattern, and had to be accessed via the wayback machine or web archive:

or with preview http://preview.tinyurl.com/mtq8kwy

if anybody's got information on more issues, i'd love to know. thanks!

trey bracelet pattern rewrite

ok. rewrote the trey bracelet ( http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/trey ) pattern so it makes some sense and doesn't leave things out. but i need a spot checker or two.

am i ass-u-m[e]ing too much?

is there a style of knitting, whether on regular needles, or DPNs, or circs, that lets you avoid purling, by turning the needles somehow? maybe by using dpn's and sliding the stitches to the opposite end of your needle and turning your work, etc?

i'm thinking something where if the pattern says:
knit 5, purl 10, knit 5, slip 2 purlwise

you could instead just:

hybrid fingertipless gloves/mittens...?

hi all... looking for a pattern for a hybrid style of gloves... i saw 2 patterns on ravelry that are similar to my brain's vision (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...e-finger-mitts and http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...-winter-gloves) but still not quite... i'd like sort of a combo of those 2 - fingertipless thumb and full-size fingertipless index.

10-Stitch Blanket but 0-Stitch Brains...

Has anybody attempted/finished a 10-stitch blanket such as http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ten-stitch-blanket ? I've tried and frogged 4 times now. I can't get past the corner stuff. It's either too many instructions, or too many new concepts for a newbie, or I'm missing something, or whatever. I've tried looking for a video of it being made, to no avail.

Knitting and beer

OK, so I usually look askance at these comments about "knitting in public." I knit anywhere I like, public or private, and I have never had a negative experience with it.
