Scarf coming along

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.

Members List

I've changed the way the members list is displayed.  It's now done in a columned, tabular format allowing you to sort by several criteria.  While certainly more attractive, I thought it might help folks find other nearby knitters via the sorting ability.  Enjoy!

Adding Images

In an effort to make it easier for you to add images to your posts as well as share other images you might have, but not necessarily want to write a lot about, I've added a new feature to the site.

If you look under the Create Content menu, you'll see a new option labeled "image" which you can use to add an image to the new image gallery, which is linked from the main menu.  I've created a few categories to get us started, but if an image you have doesn't fit, simply put it in the uncategorized section and I'll create a good place for it and move it there.

Once you've uploaded an image, you can also add it in to one of your posts.  To do this, simply browse the image gallery to find your image.  Once located, right-click on it and copy the link to that particular image.  When writing your post using the WYSIWYG editor, there's a little icon in the toolbar with a tree.  Clicking that will pop-up a box for you to paste the image link in to.

Supporting Men Who Knit

A number of you have written me in the last couple of months expressing your gratitude and asking about how you can help support the site.

 
Firstly, the best way to support the site is to keep coming back and interacting with us. Without an active user base, this site would lose its purpose.  In the last year, we've grown significantly both in numbers and talent and I hope you've all made as many new friends through the site as I have. What we've created here together is unique and very special.
 
While I do have a few ideas up my sleeve that are coming soon, in the meantime you can help out with the costs by shopping through the affiliate links on the sidebar or on this page.  If you shop regularly at a particular site and they have an affiliate program, let me know and I'll try to join.  I've been waiting weeks for applications to the programs of several yarn stores, but haven't yet received a response.

Flying with Needles

Just wanted to know what experiences people have had getting onto a plane with their knitting.  I have heard that wooden needles are okay but the metal ones are not.  I would hate to get to a gate and have them say I can't take it on.  Thanks!

If you could would you open a Yarn Store?
