At long last a picture of the simple scarf made for my sister...

I still have to sew in the zipper of the cycling aran and photograph that.

I'm one sleeve into a traditional aran, but have promised tea cozies to the boss' wife.

To make matters worse (or more exciting), or my knitting less focused, a dear friend has asked me to design some simple men's sweater patterns.

Searching for a "Man Bag"pattern

I really want to make a bag for myself, but all the patterns I find are very "girlie" or old lady style.  Of course I love to make cute bags for my girlfriends, but does anyone know of any patterns for more, ehhh, "manly" looking bags?

Knitting Wiki?

First off, for those of you who don't know what a wiki is, start off here, and then keep in mind that that site you're reading? It's probably one of the most successful wiki's around. In short, a wiki is a website that's open and editable by anyone (or, at minimum, any member) of the website. Think of it as a giant group blog.

Anyway, in short, what I'm looking for is a wiki that could active as a living repository of all things knitting: Techniques, tips and tricks, stitch patterns, information about materials, different knitting styles, etc, etc. Basically, a free, live, open knitting book that could be edited and contributed to by any member of the site, where we could all deposit the various knitting tidbits we've collected.

Can't wait to really leaern this

I literally picked up my knitting needles for the first time last night... I had signed up for a beginner's class, had to reschedule, and the rescheduled class was cancelled (I was never on the list, so they didn't have enough people). Out of sheer frustration, I went to the bookstore & picked up knitting for idiots. I also visited several websites & found some great little video clips that have at least gotten me started. I've knitted a few rows, unraveled, and started again several times. This is fun, and I can't wait until I stop screwing up!
