A Men's Knitting Group

Hello all.

Am working with a LYS to investigate and maybe form a men's knitting group in my area.

We currently have a group called Pints and Purls that meets at the local brewpub on monday nights to well have some pints and purls. We have seen a few guys show up now and again. Sometimes they are just come alongs with their wifves/girlfriends etc.

Kitting and the Dyslexic

Years ago when i first started knitting I found it to be most default often losing count of vary simple pattern repeat like in a rib stitch. At the time I did not know why but it frustrated me to no end and was one of the reasons I gave up on knitting.

Is there a place where men meet to knit and chat as so many women do? We live in Upper Bucks County, Pa.

Thought you might find this amusing.

This was in my local Sunday comics today.

Seamless sweater?

OK, so like I told Quinton in another post, I'm working on a theoretical way to make a sweater with no seams. I think I have the idea in my head, except for one place, which I'll mention in a moment.

Sweater Sleeves

Gang! I am just finishing up a set- in sleeve hoodie. Does anybody have suggestions as to sewing the sleeve seam before sewing it to the bodice or after the attachment to the body of the sweater. Thanks, Bill

thoughts on turning a flat pattern into one that is knit in the round


I'm about to start a new sweater (Nancy Salcedo's Men's Lattice) and am wondering if it would translate into a pattern I could knit in the round.

Any thoughts?
