Chris the Sheep

Has everyone heard about Chris the Sheep yet? Like Shrek from a couple years ago in New Zealand, this wry fella from Australia managed to escape shearing for they say 5-6 years. He has set a new record for wool in 1 shearing. 89 lbs!!!! I love these kind of stories because I imagine the sheep being sneaky and escaping the system, living free, on the run, off the grid. Of course, that is just me personifying Chris, but I love the idea of it! Links to some of the articles:

Men's Golf Slipper

Hi Guys,

I don't mean to invade your space (I am woman), but I am in need of a pattern (preferably knit because I'm first learning to crochet, but if I had to, I'd try crochet). I am looking for a golf slipper pattern and was wondering if anyone has one or knows where I can get one.

Thanks much!

Introduction and project share

Hey guys! I'm Rex, from central Florida. I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My partner and I have been knitting for only 4-5 months, but I already know that it is going to be one of my life long passions. My only regret is that I didn't discover this 2 decades ago. We taught ourselves through YouTube videos and reading knitter's blogs. We have (probably like most newer knitters) been doing cowls, scarves, and wraps to get the fundamentals learned.

After a year or more of false starts and other varieties of grief, I'm glad to report I was finally able to achieve some long-desired goals for the MWK web site:

Question about Bruce Weinstein Henley Sweater

The posting below was made before Ron helped me figure things out. I hadn't read the very last set of instructions in the pattern, so I missed that I need to go back after completing the sweater and pick up stitches at the very first row, do a k1xp1 and then fold under and hem. Silly me. Thanks Ron!

"Messages" down? UPDATE

August 20, 2015--The message about unable to send e-mail is still showing up. However, the green message "Message sent to ..." is there. Is the private message system separate from the e-mail links, or what? Sorry to belabor this but I want to be assured my private messages are going through.
