So... I've been a busy little boy lately... I've started on the Citron Shawlette from Knitty.com using a variegated skein of Malabrigo lace... wish me luck... I've never worked with yarn so fine (first time to work with lace weight EVER!). The pattern is fairly easy, and the results are coming out beautifully. Also making a couple of the Meathead Hat Pattern from Knitalong: Celebrating the Tradition of Knitting Together by Larissa Brown. My camera has officially given up so... pictures will come as soon as my tax return cash comes in!
So I have this new obsession with collecting pattern books specifically geared towards men, which has temporarily ousted my yarn swift obsession (but believe me, it's still in the back of my mind! My tinker-toy setup is getting me by). So I have the following books (either already in my collection or on order):
Son of Stitch and Bitch by
Knits for Men
Knitting for Him
The Knitting Man(ual)
Knitting With Balls
Just wondering if anyone had other books they can recommend either geared towards men's patterns, or has a lot of good men's patterns in it. I'm especially interested in books that are a little more fashion forward... so any thoughts or recommendations would be GREAT!
