miss-taken identity

I was finally able to view MenKnit, the second issue. For whatever reason, my Mac at home doesn't see some of the fonts. That's why I'm thankful for my office and this here computer...

One thing was surprising... the photo of Mark (of MarQ1) looks a lot like me (of hizknits.com).

Mark, I'm so sorry they put that photo there. While, I often shave my head, currently, I'm much hair-ier.

braided cable hat

first hat of my own design. the cables are different sizes, though it doesn't show too well in the picture. i'm not sure if i like the color combination, what do ya'll think? a friend asked for the pattern (martin webster, to be exact), so i wrote it out. if anyone would like the pattern feel free to ask. i'd be happy for anyone to use it.  i dunno if anyone would want to make it or wear it... but it's here just in case, haha. oh, and thanks to martin for giving me the courage to even post it!

traveling with knitting supplies

hi everyone!

i'll be flying back to college soon and i was wondering if any of you had a negative experience trying to get though airport security with knitting needles. i've flown with wooden needles before, but i'm working on a project with addi turbos and i'm not sure if i could get through security with them....i don't want them to be taken away! i know a few friends of mine have had their needles taken away. i'm afraid that if security does find them they won't believe that i knit and will assume that i plan on poking someone to death.....i dunno. am i just being paranoid?<

Thanks!

Fashion Show

Alright boys, I’m turning to you for advise. I’ve spent a lot of time on this and would be grateful for your time reading this and hopefully responding. I’m in the process of putting together a community fashion and art show for the Spring of ‘07. I’m giving myself just over a year so I can spend the next two months to finish writing the proposal, finding resources and materials, locating potential venues, talking with interested artist, crafters, and models, and taking classes. And a year to create outfits and art. I’m an advanced knitter, novice seamster and needle worker, and just learning crocheting. I also make buttons, beads, jewelry, and other accessories. So, I have thousands of questions ranging from fashion show management and development to helpful books or web sites on clothing construction to opinion about materials and patterns, and any comments or tips are greatly appreciated.

MenKnit Mag #2

At long last, MenKnit's second issue is out. I know a handful of you guys here have a pattern in there, myself included!

my Messenger Bag in action
So this is what it feels like to be published! I encourage everyone to consider submitting to future issues. We need more patterns by men out there. Thank you, Tricky and Dan!

Have any of you guys used Lana Grossa 'Filati' magazine?

It looks interesting but not that readily available as far as I can tell.
