something for the men

i've been knitting alot of scarves lately. if i get accepted to the toronto one-of-a-kind show in december i'll just be taking scarves. (i was there 2 years ago with my hooked mats). i realized yesterday that i don't see many men's handmade scarves (online or at the craft fairs) so have decided to branch out. i consulted keith (he's fairly fashion conscious for a newfoundland mill worker). he says wide and short so you can tuck it into a jacket. i showed him what i made last night and he says the knit was too open. but when he tried it on he liked it and it looked good...

men are a tough audience! but I think any man who would consider a handmade scarf is already ahead of the game. I love seeing the progress on your mat and I really love the black on black patterning. Very nice!

thanks for your nice note yesterday! It is good to be home and have a little time to regroup. But I am excited to head north...

Where do you buy your scottish burlap for the base of your hooked mats?
I've been following your progress with the mat... it's looking good!
