Wow - what a great community! So glad to be here.
Knitting news from chilly South England -
I was working on Martin Storey's Amos but couldn't get gauge even on needles four sizes smaller (Martin must knit *very very tightly*). I did the maths and, yes, all the stitch counts are right, but if I knit it on 2mm needles it would have stood up on its own.
So... I'm doing the same cable but on a sleeve - big k2p2 30F cable. Chunky. Sculptural.
Also just introduced my Sis-in-law to circulars. She can't believe anyone would ever knit on anything else.
"One of us, one of us..."
Also, knitting a pair of mittens in Manos de Uruguay merino/silk combo. I rather thought a jumper in it would be a ridiculous spend. Mittens? Just about right.
Thank you for welcoming me here - I'm glad to not be only the second guy I know who knits....
