Superman’s suit was knitted?
Obviously awesome, but how did we not know this?

Good to know.

I don’t normally post WIP pics anymore if it’s not Wednesday, but I plan on working on this a lot tonight and will surely run out of room on the needles and not be able to get a decent picture until I get bigger ones.
I’m using the Radiating Star Blanket pattern from Ravelry, with worsted weight yarn and size ten needles.
I’m still debating on whether or not I want to do multiple colors. Input?

My sock drawer is finally upgraded from a Rubbermaid organizer to an actual dresser drawer. It overfloweth still. 12 pairs went to retirement. That first row? All Socks That Rock #operationsockdrawer #socks #knitting #socksthatrock #bmfa

That’s a LOT of knitted socks!!

I have failed you… :/

I finished this cowl about a month ago, but I was just looking at it again thinking about how much I like it. So look! Rainbow yarn! Aster stitch! KNITTING !

Oh wow.

“As long as there has been knitting there have been battles about it. There are self-declared “yarn snobs,” who frown on using anything but natural fibers; “gauge snobs”, who wouldn’t be caught dead with chunky yarn; and “experience snobs”, who claim you can’t declare yourself a real knitter until you abandon novelty yarns. The truth is that the knitting world is a tiny metaphor for the real world. It takes all kinds.


I will not allow myself to feel bad if someone disapproves of my knitting. I will also resist the urge to stuff his mailbox full of chunky acrylic fun fur at 3:00 am.”

What kinds of features would you put in a knitting and/or crochet magazine?

Less ugly men’s knits. Mostly stuff that doesn’t look like my grandfather wore it after the war. I want patterns as gorgeous as the women’s! Hell, just help me convert a woman’s pattern to fit my body.

kalany replied to your post “What kinds of features would you put in a knitting and/or crochet magazine?”

A section on the science&engineering of knitting, with academically formatted papers peer reviewed by fellow scientist-knitters and an extensive comments & responses subsection.

Looking at you interweave.

Yes.
