I just posted a blog entry about this pamplet called CraftsManShip, with knit patterns for men that I think are from the 1970s.
Cat Bordhi has been doing week-long retreats for several years wherein she teaches about self-publishing in the knitting industry. She calls these “Visionary Retreats.” which focus on helping aspiring knit designers “happily and successfully marry the mechanics of self-publishing with the magic of knit design and creativity.” These retreats include morning sessions in which Cat teaches everything she knows about writing, book designing, illustrating (and how to delegate these skill-based tasks), self-publishing, distributing, and marketing.
I thought some of you might be interested in coming to these workshops, especially those in nearby states to the Northern Coast of California.
I've taken the plunge and entered the world of blogging. Check it out at goodforaboy.com/blog.

I finally finished a jacket that I've been working on for three years. I don't like stranded knitting--I'm slow, dropping the yarn and picking up the other one rather than two handed.
I was able to pick up a copy of this pamplet book for 9.99 on ebay!
This is my first Entrelac project. The scarf has not been blocked yet. Brian Kohler, who designs for Skacel, taught this Entrelac Scarf pattern at the Men's Fall Knitting Retreat.
In case you haven't seen this, it's in stark contrast to the earlier post by Robert featuring Extreme Knitting, 1000 strand! This features the knitting of miniatures for the movie Coraline.
