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.
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!
Before I was a college-dropout, I was a linguistics major and find great delight in regional variations in language. While making flash cards for one of English students, I realized that the past tense of knit can either be knit or knitted.
I was wondering if you good people would indulge me and reply back whether you "knit a scarf yesterday" or if you "knitted a scarf yesterday" and where you're from.
Here's how I conjugate it in the past tense:
I knit a scarf yesterday.
You knit a scarf yesterday.
He/She knitted a scarf yesterday.

Greetings from the land of NASCAR and barbecue wars. I'm a librarian in North Carolina who's trying to start a knitting group for teens. The girls are responding but the guys are slow to buy in. I'm posting a flyer with "Man Enough To Knit Strong Enough To Purl" and photos of men of various ages knitting, but I could use some suggestions. I'm over 50. Any ideas on what might appeal to the younger crowd? Thanks in advance for your insights.
Um, well I have started a new project which really is just a scarf but working with a different textured yarn which is the new part. I also just bought more needles, a pattern and yarn for another project and i have some other yarn for another project that I am thinking about. Starting to get piles of knitting things. Is this a disease I have caught??
Joined last week and thought I would say hello. I am NOT a man, but I hope you guys don't hold it against me! I am a designer who is VERY interested in designing men's knits and hope to learn from all of your experiences. I think the current availability of designs is pretty slim, and would like to work on changing that.
I was wondering if any, some or all of you guys that are retired or not so retired or working par time , if you get together during some daytime hours in the city of San Francisco for coffee and stitches. I will like to meet with other guys for that here in the City, maybe you do it in other cities, I will like to hear from all of you.
I was planning to go to the center today and work on my scarf. I decided to wait until next year. I have been very busy with a new crochet group on MSN http://groups.msn.com/crochetdepot . This is part of what I do. I am still knitting my scarf and got some nice yarn from a store in Daly City call Beverly's Crafts? Anyway it is a big store with lots of yarns, I will remember that for next time.
