I apologize for my lack of action in our men who knit group. I am still around, extremely busy with my MSN group and learning to Quilt. I am embarking in a very interesting craft alongside knitting and crocheting, quilting.
I have gone to Puerto Rico to visit in January and I am have been back. What else? Just enjoying this beautiufl life one day at a time. Got a tatto, and I am planning my 30th High School reunion in 2008. Growing my beard and thinking of making some new knitted hats.
Thanks for allowing me to share
I have not written much, but my scarf is coming along . It just takes me a long time to knit, unless is a cable sweater, which I love. I am looking forward to the new year and have in my goals make some socks, which Ihave never done before. I may even try ti knit a cap with the foru needles first before I do the socks. I got mysel a nice holiday present, a set of Boye's circular needle set with interchangeable needles. What can I say I am a good bad boy.
I think that one of the things that I like about kniting is the time it takes me to do certain things. Patience is required to come up with the design and colors for such a simple item as a scarf. Here is the progress so far. I like long scarfs and this one looks like it may be one of those.
I was planning to go to the center today and work on my scarf. I decided to wait until next year. I have been very busy with a new crochet group on MSN http://groups.msn.com/crochetdepot . This is part of what I do. I am still knitting my scarf and got some nice yarn from a store in Daly City call Beverly's Crafts? Anyway it is a big store with lots of yarns, I will remember that for next time.
Some of you knew Grannyguy, from Crochetdepot.org. He was my friend and the friend of a lot of you. He wanted to learn how to knit, I did webcam training with him, but I was not a good teacher, we laughed he could not cast on as I taught. Today I am a bit sad, Scott and I developed a fast friendship, we liked each other a LOT. Nevertheless we were flirting friends. His health has not been very good, I called him every day to cheer him up. I was not able to talk to him since Tuesday, last nite he came to visit in a dream to tell me he died. I was disturbed by the dream and woke up, and he was sitting by the side of the bed, then he vanished. I loved him very much I wanted him to join this site. He will be missed, but will be present in our memories for all times. Thanks for the opportunity to express my emotions. Andrito ama a Tito.
I was inspired by a friend of mine on the net, http://colamanknits.blogspot.com , his sweater gave me the inspiration for this scarf which I may bring to the Community center to continue my work with the inspiration of the other peple as well. Anyway it is on of the projects I have for the holidays along with my hats.
This is a scarf I made in 1997, I also knitted a sweater with the matching colors. It was a very beautiful sweater. Very Heavy. It had all kinds of yarn, from Icelandic Wool, to some mohair to acrycic. I may get motivated and make some sweaters, I want to buy those detachable circular needles. Does anyone has them, the ones you change the tips, How will you rate them.
My name is Andy, I live in San Francisco, I work with knitting and crochet. I have been Knitting since 1988. Right now for the holidays I am working on some Knitted hats, nothing fancy like David's cabled skull cabs, but cool enough to say nice hat. Have a nice weekend. Here is one of my hats, half acrylic, havlf chunky wooll ease.
