Mum's Cardigan

Well I made this cardigan for my mum on my "new" Passap DM80 machine. It is not really new but secondhand. Passap machines haven't been made for over 20 years. I brought it off a old lady who no longer had the need for it.

Being a double bed machine it can do ribbing without any hand manipulation so quicker to knit. Also can do a lot of patterns. It also does k:k stitch which is knit stitch on both sides of garment ( no purl side).

Time sure flies....

I can't believe it's been this long since I've visited. I like what you guys have done to the place. Finally realized that I've been way to busy and it's time to slow down and pick up those needles once again. I wonder if I still remember to turn a heel. Heck, I'm wondering if I remember how to cast on. Anyway, good to be back.

Recent work

It's been a very long time since I posted to MWK, although I have stopped by occasionally to see what all the guys have been up to. However, I see others are not posting either! I have a story to tell you about repurposing some yarn.

Any Men Knitting in Southeast Michigan?

Hi Men,

I think knitting is a terrific way to relax. Would love to find other guys in the Southeast Michigan (Detroit, Ann Arbor) area who would like to get together and knit. It would be great to have some good conversation partners while working on projects. Hope guys will message me if you are in my area and interested!

Nice to be back - Happy Knitting Guys!!

Menknit.net

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?
