At long last, MenKnit's second issue is out. I know a handful of you guys here have a pattern in there, myself included!
It looks interesting but not that readily available as far as I can tell.

The monthly gathering of the fellas to sit around and knit, converse and drink some coffee. In December we talked about various group projects we could endeavor. Bring your ideas to the table.

My PA (that's personal assistant and not Prince Albert) gave me as a New Year's gift a daily calendar called "Knit Bits". It has a little piece about knitting for each day of the year. I thought it might be fun to share them here throughout the year.
Dec 31 - Jan 1 Knitting can be solace, inspiration, adventure. It is manual and mental therapy. It keeps us warm as well as those we like and love. It has existed almost as long as the soft sheep, and in giving us wool they are deprived ony of an uncomfortably warm fur coat in the heat of the summer. From Knitting Without Tears by Elizabeth Zimmermann (On this date there is a picture of a woman knitting with the balloon which says "I'm knitalicious!")
I make wooden and bamboo knitting needles as a hobby, not as a business. I am willing to trade for; yarn to build my stash, knitting notions and gadgets, knitting books, make me an offer. If you request a specific size, I will need to know if it is US or metric. If you have a design in mind, let me know... pix and/or drawings help. I use my own hand-made Straight and Double-Point needles to knit with, and I know what is required by a knitter to make them pleasing to work with the very first time they are used. If you are not happy with my creations, I will gladly return whatever it was you traded me for them.
