Blarsen here. I was taught to knit by my Mom when I was 6 but promptly forgot about it when faced with the scorn of my playmates.
It is now 42 years later, and I am rediscovering the art. Been at it for a month now and have a couple of scarves, a pair of socks, a well-on-the-way wool sweater, a barely started Merino baby blanket, and a sore shoulder to show for it. My wife is an accomplished albeit sporadic knitter and a great source of wisdom and handy magic tricks.
I live in Stavanger on the south-western coast of Norway and work with IT stuff, mainly for the petroleum sector like most of my ilk around here.
I've just joined Ravelry but was thrilled to find that menwhoknit.com exists. Kudos to the organizers, looking forward to get to know you all.
