I would just like to send my sympathies to those that loved and lost as a result of the dreadful events 5 years ago today. I will personally be taking time out to sit and remember all those affected by the attack on Twin Towers. You will all be in my thoughts.

Hey guys I just started a new mobile chat group on upoc.com that is strictly for male knitters only. I thought this would be something fun for those of you who enjoy text messaging on your cellphones. It is a private group. You will have to send request to join and wait for my approval. I did this to keep the group safe and fun.
Here's the address for the group if your interested: http://upoc.com/group.jsp?group=maleknitters
For those of you not familiar with upoc.com and mobile chat communities you can go here ---> http://www.upoc.com/help.jsp#moreInfo to find out what upoc is all about and how to use it.

So, I am approaching the end of a project, and I've...well... I'm a blocking virgin, but I anticipate a need for it with this project. I was wondering if you delightful gentlemen could help me out. Be it tutorials, directions, tips, tricks, anything, it will be much appreciated.

i've started yet another 'interstitial project' as a break from mitered squares and the amazing-never-will-be-finished hooded pullover. i bought some Aurora "under the ice" ribbon-type yarn from Yarn Bee and i think i'm in love!! i've never used something that takes such big clunky needles(size 15) before: they go "klack-klack" and not "click-click" anyways, i decided to knit it up as a scarf for a friend.....this stuff is too "glam" for a cranky old guy like m'self to pull off, anyway. started last night just working a littl

I was all excited when my store got Not Another Teen Knitting Book by Vickie Howell.
I bought it the 1st day it was on our shelves and immediately decided to whip up the cool nerdy v-neck vest on my knitting machine. I was planning to substitute the yarn, and while working out the calculations, I found a typo.
I emailed the publisher and Vickie emailed back confirming that I caught a mistake.
So... If you are working this sweater vest, the needles called for are 10.5, not 8 as listed in the pattern.
In the end, I decided that the pattern would end up too snug for me to wear at work and could not be worked on the machine. Instead, I created my own version on Knitware Design. Made the back last night, hope to complete it this weekend.
Is machine knitting cheating?
