Are there enough people in the Madison, Wisconsin area to merit a get-together? I'd love to get to know other knitters in the area. Since anywhere in Southern Wisconsin is accessible, let's talk.
Okay, so I've been checking out teh whole iPodding thing, and I found a podcast for knitting. I'll post a link below. I haven't listened to one yet, but I'm curious... if anyone here downloads it and listens to it, please put up a review.

hello! ...help is much appreciated!!!
I'm an expert knitter who has been asked by a guy to do a commissioned hat for him.... in two colors. There are not enough men's hat patterns out there! I can design something if i have to, but i'd rather at least see some interesting possibilities first... all i can think of are either blah...(like taking a ski cap and doing it in stripes).... or a little silly... (like a pointed Andean hat with ear flaps, which works on some people but not on others, if you know what i mean). Any suggestions, pleeeeeeeeeeeease???? :D

I really want to make a bag for myself, but all the patterns I find are very "girlie" or old lady style. Of course I love to make cute bags for my girlfriends, but does anyone know of any patterns for more, ehhh, "manly" looking bags?
First off, for those of you who don't know what a wiki is, start off here, and then keep in mind that that site you're reading? It's probably one of the most successful wiki's around. In short, a wiki is a website that's open and editable by anyone (or, at minimum, any member) of the website. Think of it as a giant group blog.
Anyway, in short, what I'm looking for is a wiki that could active as a living repository of all things knitting: Techniques, tips and tricks, stitch patterns, information about materials, different knitting styles, etc, etc. Basically, a free, live, open knitting book that could be edited and contributed to by any member of the site, where we could all deposit the various knitting tidbits we've collected.
I literally picked up my knitting needles for the first time last night... I had signed up for a beginner's class, had to reschedule, and the rescheduled class was cancelled (I was never on the list, so they didn't have enough people). Out of sheer frustration, I went to the bookstore & picked up knitting for idiots. I also visited several websites & found some great little video clips that have at least gotten me started. I've knitted a few rows, unraveled, and started again several times. This is fun, and I can't wait until I stop screwing up!
These knitters can take the needling
