Well, the sweater is going a lot easier than I thought. I have become a man possessed. I am knitting whenever I get free second.Coffee shops, work, home, etc. In 3-4 days I finished the front and I am about 3/4 done with the back. I am by nature, not a fast knitter, but I am methodical.
I will post some pics later. Now I must knit!
Also, some of you showed interest in the "knitting culture" of Japan. Long story short.... Japan is even more chauvenistic than you could possibly guess. I think the woman at the yarn store almost had a heart attack when I walked in. Men do men things and women do women things here (for the most part) and I guess they think knitting is a woman's thing.

Or shoud I say men's night! We've been open 2 weeks and we've only had 1 man so far but I don't care we are committed to having a male knitting group in our great capital. Well, women are welcome but men are the centre of attention for fridays. I think if we persevere we might just make it work.
I wish we could see Chris Vandenberg aand Stckywarp and JPaul and all the rest of you but maybe we might see Ivan The Terrible, with a name like that I really hope so , Ivan I think you might need some DPN.
So, for Fridays, pray for men, London needs them.

Well hopefully you guys might be reading this, my third attempt to get something on here!!! My computer hasn't been behaving! Just to say a HUGE thankyou for such a warm response to just titles so far!! I'm VERY excited to have found this place to share my knitting-related thoughts, joys and frustrations!! My mother taught me basic stitches when I was just into my teens, and I managed to put together a few scarves and a VERY basic sweater made from rectangles of garter stitch...I seem to remember it looking quite cool under dungarees (EEK!!!). A girlfriend of mine started to knit a couple of years ago, and I picked up some needles one evening with her and haven't stopped since!!
