Guys in Austin with Yarn

Dougup67, a fellow Austinite and customer at The Knitting Nest, contacted me through Stacy about setting up a gay-friendly men's knitting group for the Austin area. Stacy knew that I and a few other customers had been talking about doing something like this for a while. We contacted some people we know, and we're planning on having our first get-together at The Knitting Nest this Sunday, August 1st from 2-4pm. Nothing formal -- just show up! If you know someone who might be interested, let him know.

As an adjunct to this effort, we started a group in Ravelry, Guys in Austin with Yarn (get it?) Please feel free to join -- being careful not to twist! And if you know of anyone who might be interested, pass the word along.

I now open up the floor to mockery of my lame photo manipulation skillz:


  1. Can I come?
    Sunday is August 1 (I know because I've got cupcakes to bake!)

  2. LOL - love the Ravelry group badges! Have fun with your new group!

  3. I'm really glad that y'all are getting a men's knitting group going, I'm sure it'll be a good thing to get away from all our female chatter for a little bit. :)

    P.S. - those are some of the best Photoshop skillz I've ever seen. ;)

  4. you shouldn't have told me when and where cuz now i'm gonna crash your bash.
