My name's not Stuart Real Person!!!

Okay so I'm not quite sure how this website rolls but I'm sure I didn't put my name as Stuart Real Person! Is this insanity related to the the following email I sent...

Hi there,
I'm not sure how long approval takes but I was wondering when you guys are gonna lemme in!! I'm a real boy! lol
Nah, I'm just excited to get on and speak to other guys who share a similar interest!
Username = a_strange_boy


Well, I never!!

Anyway, this is my first blog, thought I'd say hi to the community! My names Stuart and I only recently started knitting. Here's a picture of the first scarf that I knitted (before I put fringe on it)...


I've currently got a couple of other projects on the go...a white scarf for one of my friends (when I showed people that I could actually knit there was a chorus of "can you knit me sumfin?!?"), another scarf using boucle wool (which is a bitch! never using it again!) and a little iPod sock!

For some reason the current song that's running through my head is Right Through You by Alanis Morrissette...

"wait a minute, sir
you mispronounced my name"

Anyway, it's good to meet everyone! Comment and say hi!


P.S. I hope HTML code works on this!!

Hi Stuart! Welcome! You'll find all the people on this website are extremely helpful, I just started knitting in November myself and have learned so much already! With the help that everyone gives, it is really encouraging and keeps you motivated in the craft!

I hope to be a real person someday, Stuart. I fear I’ve just been pretending for most of my life. But, like you, I’ve recently picked up knitting and it’s turning out to be a bit of a game changer. You can’t really pretend with knitting. I mean you can either knit or you can’t. People don’t really pretend to knit. Especially guys. Can’t say I’ve ever met a guy who “pretended” to knit. Anyway I’m on my way to getting real and I’m not sure that knitting isn’t helping me get there, if you follow me.

welcome, stuart!

the "real person" part of the signup has to do with working towards keeping bots off the site - it's a neverending (and tiring!) process -

congratulations on discovering knitting and this site - it's FULL of amazing guys who knit and are willing to offer support and guidance. you'll find a wonderful home here!

your first scarf looks fantastic!
