HI ih ave been machine knitting now for about twenty years
a lady friend got a machine and i was fascinated by the way it worked. in a short while i got a bond knitting machine and with help from my friend i started turning out sweaters
after awhile i got an old knitmaster and progressed from there .i now use a toyota 901 with a ribber and have never worried about what peope think
i knit and my wife bonita crochets
never let anyone put you off something creative i am a member of the knittign &crochet group on MSN and i am one of only two males that ever join in the chats
take a look at my pics, my album is called 'stuff from england '
carry on knitting or crocheting regardless
best wishes
les ( known as talentedbrummygrandad on MSN )

You should get to know John, a retired British schoolmaster who posts on the TKGA forum. He is a brilliant knitter and generous teacher who encourages others to become independent and design their own knitwear -- no "trust the pattern" with John! He has posted some pictures which make it clear that his wife is one of the best-dressed women in the county, at least in terms of sweaters and shawls.

We have three men in our local knitting group, and I have the pleasure of being married to one of them.

And all the women that were wise hearted did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linen. Exodus 35:25

Good for you! Love the attitude..I just wish more people felt like you. Creativity is a necessity, imo.

Hi from an ex-Brit living in Australia (been here a long time) - Good on you - no reason at all for anyone to put anybody off being creative -there should be more men like you (I'm sure there ARE plenty - I once knew a University Science professor who used to crochet on the London Underground - He made things for his wife as well as himself - Keep up the good work - Happy Knitting - Lucylocket[meow]

Les, I love your attitude: Never let anyone put you off something creative. That should be everyone's mantra!

Thanks, Grandad!
