Novice knitter really enjoying making socks. Seems like most patterns are for women altered to men's sizing. I find much errata in these. Also looking for something lighter for warm weather, most are done in wool however I've never used any sock weight other than wool. Any suggestions?
Just 24 days left in this school year (with students). I will be so glad to begin the summer knitting as much as possible. Tomorrow Geraldine, the Yarn Truck comes to my town. Hope to knit then too.
Where is everyone? I'm at the Mass Ave knitting retreat. Only guy here. Am I alone I Indy? Here for the next three weeks.
Most of the blogs I read on this site exclaim that spring and summer are coming---- not so for us in the Southern Hemisphere. I needed a new scarf so created the one pictured. It has great draping properties and is sooo warm. I just hope that I do not misplace it somewhere like a cafe.
New kickstart machine for hobbyist from the open knit inventors.
Today is the first day of Spring and I'm extremely grateful. Friends and family have pointed out the fact that Wyoming often has wintry conditions until mid-May but we've had a long warm spell this past week and I don't mind a bit. As I told them, "Even if we are having snow and cold, it still matters that it is Spring and we can anticipate the longer days and the return of warm weather."
I have done some research this evening and can't find any patterns for a colostomy bag cover. A friend of mine had his perforated bowel removed a year ago and has to wear a bag now for the rest of his life unless they can figure out some way to restore things inside. Until then, he needs a bit of a boost. He hasn't been intimate with anyone so I thought he might like something a bit more than just a girdle type piece of cloth to cover it.
I am new to the knitting game, but it seems male knitting is looked down upon. Even some of my best friends look at me strange when I talk about my knitting. What are some of yalls experience and how do y'all handle it?
Anyone out there know of a beginner doormat pattern? And what kind of yarn would be good to use with it? Thanks!
