So, should we all come togethar as MEN WHO KNIT. COM and find a place and purpose to utlize our talents, what would it be? Now, I'm unyielding on this. SHould it be some charitable movement that benefits men? Or do we cross the bounds of social stigma and propose a charity that helps women? children? or everyone? To what greater purpose could or needles knit and purl? What strikes us down? and what of our talents could be used to defeat that?
I need referrals to good yarn stores in the following cities. Can anyone help?
San Francisco, Ca..... Seattle, WA....Milwaukee, WI... and Vancouver, BC.
Thanks a bunch.
Well here is the tatoo that I spoke of at the beginning of the year. It was done at Wizz Tattoo in Isla Verde, just diagonally accross from my old home of residence. It is in Klingon and it says
Honor, Heart and Klingon
Well I don't do much knitting, but I still knit. I have never done knitting on the round with a circular needle. I am making a hat and another scarf.
Lionbrand Homespun is not an easy to deal with yarn, but here I go. Thankls for looking
For the past five years or so I've been attending an annual Folk Music weekend - lots of time to work on various knitting projects. Over the years more and more handcrafts are making their appearances at the various song workshops, concerts and sing-alongs; a bunch of knitters this year, several crocheters, some hand spinners, embroidery and this year even a quilter. Several comments heard at various times over the weekend:
wow! I can see knitting to shanties, but I never thought you could knit to Do-Wop!
Can somone loan me some needles and yarn? I feel out of place.
I knit Music into every stitch.
but best of all was when they tried to turn the lights down at once concert - got a chorus of "NO!"'s and then a shouted "We knitters have needles and we know how to use them!"
I managed to do the finishing on one shawl, added several inches in diameter to a circular shawl and got most of a christmas stocking knit up while listening and singing.
Someone asked about the sash I knit for my highlander outfit. It is knit in Peruvian Tweed alpaca and Blue Moon mohair miniloop boucle (Olive garden is the color). Size 10.5 needles, K10, P10 rib for 90 stitches and 8 feet. (I think the whole thing cost about $70 for materials.) 1 skein each, lots of yardage on both. I still have enough yarn left to knit a scarf out of the same.
Looking for a cool pattern for mittens, fingerless or not, to make as a xmas gift. I'm not liking much of what I am finding so far on the net.
Oh... men's size med.
Hope you all are well!
