Fair Isle and stitch counts for various patterns

Hi Everyone,
I'm basically a beginner to knitting but am really enjoying it. One of my issues with any craft is to find a way of making practical things, not just pretty things that will sit on a dresser or hang on a wall.

FO: Welsh Tea Cozy

I made a tea cozy for my mom for Mother's Day. It's not quite what I intended, but I think she'll like it.

Help Needed on Decorative Knitting Needle Tops

Hello All,

I am wanting to start offering decorative single point knitting needles that are geared toward men. I need your help in determining what style tops would be most popular. You could call this market research.

Please take a look at the attached picture and post which style tops you like. I will take the input and use it to determine what styles I may offer.

Best invisible increase?

I am currently knitting the Scot Wars Bonnet, a Scottish style cap based on a 17th Century pattern. I really like the simple pattern instructions and I think the bonnet will be great for our clan gatherings. However, one down side of the simple instructions is lack of detail.

Want to learn new mad knitting skills

Hello fellow knitter! I'm super excited that I found this website and don't know why I didn't think to google "Men who knit" ages ago! Alas, I found the site and happy to be apart of this community. I'm posting in beginners because I've been knitting for a while now but its never really extended beyond dish cloths and slippers.

Knitting book online

Just found out that one of my favourite knitting books (published in the 80s) is available to read for free online! It's very difficult to get hold of - I am lucky to have my grandmother's copy. The book, written by Vibeke Lind, was translated into English as "Knitting in the Nordic Tradition" but I guess those copies are just as difficult to find.
