Poor me, my sis who knits moved to Oregon and got married. And sadly, I buried a cousin two weeks ago who was a lifetime knitter. Any guys in the northern michigan area who knit? Sure could use a new knitting buddy.
You are a prime example of what i like about this site. Very swell guys who just happen to knit. thanks for that.
Try doing a search on Ravelry... there may be some knitting groups near you. I go to two around me and though I'm the only male I always have a blast. Plus they're always are great companions at fiber fests.
How North is Northern? I live in Grand Rapids, MI and consider myself a Mid-Michigander.
Im waaaaaaaay up here in Petoskey, about 30 miles south of the bridge. For everyone who's not a Michigander that would the top left corner of the middle finger of your left hand. So far, I've been invited to knit with the ladies at a local knit shop, but those are on Saturdays when Im working.
I might just have to matters into my own hands.
If we lived in the same town, I'd be your buddy. However, the best I can do is continue to be an on-line knitting buddy for you. Hope you find some others in your area. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
