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.
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.
Here's Willy's RED SWEATER with RED RHINESTONE BUTTONS!
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.

Seattle Men Who Knit is alive and well in 2013!
Our first meetings after the 2011 Men's Knitting Retreat have grown, and we are now meeting 2nd and 4th Thursdays at Elliott Bay Cafe on Capitol Hill (10th Avenue between Pike and Pine, one block east of Broadway, in the back of Elliott Bay Booksellers) from 7-9 PM.
I block EVERYTHING! How severely depends on the desired texture and feel. I use a gravity feed iron. Cannot imagine life without it.
Happy New Year everyone!
Quick question for the MWK crew - which yarn meter have you found success with? There are oodles to chose from and each have reviews ranging from amazing to craptacular; so I am at a loss - but have LOTS of yarn I need to know the amount of before I begin a project and run out....again! Thanks all!
