Hi. I am in Long Beach, CA. Looking for other guys in the area (LA/OC) who are interested in meeting up to knit together. If interested please send me a message. Thanks.
I am attempting this vest (http://olgacasey.blogspot.com/2011/08/hetman.html), but being a relatively new knitter, I have questions.
First, I need to up-size this a bit, any clues as to how o do this?
Second, there are instructions to "add a stitch" for the back of the vest. Does this mean I should make a stitch, or is there another technique I need to learn?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
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?
This is my Purple Dollie
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.
So I am reaching out because I am having a hard time reading this pattern. This is the first time for one of my projects to follow any form of a pattern. I am attempting to make the mens slippers but am getting very confused with the notes at the end of the pattern. I attached a second pattern that had a little more past the adjustments for the men's pattern.
Hey there, I am wondering if there is still a mens knitting group in Phoenix AZ, also if anyone has a pattern for a mens sweater knit top down?
Hope to hear from YOu!!
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?
I am planning on making a sweater out of sock yarn and could use some help in fiber selection. I just made a sweater from my son out of acrylic and I don't want to do that again. Acrylic tends to sag under its own weight, so I ended up ripping a lot out to shorten things. I will post more about that later.
