It's been a very long time since I posted to MWK, although I have stopped by occasionally to see what all the guys have been up to. However, I see others are not posting either! I have a story to tell you about repurposing some yarn.

Any Men Knitting in Southeast Michigan?

Hi Men,

I think knitting is a terrific way to relax. Would love to find other guys in the Southeast Michigan (Detroit, Ann Arbor) area who would like to get together and knit. It would be great to have some good conversation partners while working on projects. Hope guys will message me if you are in my area and interested!

Menknit.net

Yesterday, I was sorting through old knitting patterns and etc and I found some articles from "Menknit - the world's first 'zine for men who knit". The last issue I have is dated 2006. I suppose I had forgotten all about them over the years as I've moved away from spending so much time at the computer. I did try their web address (www.menknit.net) but it only comes up as a resource page.
So, does anyone know what's become of this e-zine or the man who created it?

Dakota Dreams Stranded Slipover

I just finished this garment this week and thought I'd share it. It is called 'Dakota Dreams' from the book "Fearless Fair Isle Knitting". As you can see from the design, it really isn't a Fair Isle pattern but rather it is a modern design done in stranded knitting. There are two offerings of the garment: this colourway for men and a softer one in blues for women.

Bowl me over.

Hey, so I'm a potter,(and a knitter, of course) and I thought I'd pick your all's brains. I do lots of yarn bowls, and recently thought of increasing my line. Is there anything you've been looking for, knit accessory wise that I could make, that you've been unable to find?
