We have a very shy knitter on Quadra. He loves to knit and does a great job. He came in just before Christmas and bought yarn to make this sweater. Actually he was going to make a small sweater but changed his mind and went for a bigger one. This is knit with Opal 6ply and Patons Astra for the solid, no pattern he just started knitting. Yesterday he bought yarn to make his first Aran knit sweater. He has never knit cables before but loves them. I showed him the basics of cables and I'll bet he back in a week or 2 with sweater 2 done.
He is very shy that he is a male knitter. We wil help him get over that. He is teaching his wife to knit and she is making scarves. They make a great knitting team.
