Have you heard about the work of knitta, please in Montrose, TX? You have to see it to believe it.
My partner sent me the link to Wooster Collective, a site celebrating street and epemeral art. An article was published today in the Houston Press.
Color me inspired! Rock on, sisters.

Wow! What a wonderful way to get together! Haven't had too many opportunities to get together with others to discuss knitting. And, most knitters still tend to be women, so haven't listened to the male slant on knitting at all. But I really love the way MEN WHO KNIT is set up. Plan on exchanging a lot of opinion, information, and chat with the group.
I started knitting about twenty-six years ago when I couldn't find a decent sweater for my little girl. My daughter is now in her late twenties and still loves Daddy's sweaters more than any other. In addition to sweaters, i have designed -- and knitted -- hats, caps, gloves, scarves, and socks. SOCKS! How much fun is that? Love the whole process of making socks. And love wearing my hand-knit socks. Love flooring people with the idea of an old coot like me working with dainty laces and needles.

Finally started on my first cap. Using #2s and now thinking for my first one I should have gone for something using bigger needles. I can tell the stitch is going to look great but as you seasoned people know, it's gonna take me a while to feel like I am getting anywhere. Oh well.
