Have you ever noticed there aren't many knitters (let alone male knitters) knit in public anymore?
Commuting almost every day for 2 hours on the Long Island Railroad really turns my knitting-as-a-hobby to a little knitting factory.
Many of the knitters on Ravelry asked if i have a blog so they can know what i have been knitting and updates on my original designs.
For those of you who don't know me, I am Matt. I live in New York and working on my doctorate in music performance. I was introduced to crochet by a very close friend of mine and not long after i discovered knitting. I have been knitting for almost 2 years. I find it very de-stressing and liberating.
I love music and knitting, can't imagine my life without them, so i decided to blog about my life.
I also designed some of the knit wear occasionally, they are available for purchase and download at my account at Ravelry
So Right now on my needles i am knitting the Easy Folded Poncho by Churchmouse Yarn and Tea
This is the perfect commute/netflix/dummy knitting. You're essentially knitting a rectangular stockinette fabric. Don't worry guys this poncho is not for myself. But this is a very nice design, simple design with an optional cowl neck and I have chosen Knitpicks City Tweed DK in obsidian. It's gonna be super lofty and warm.
Here is a photo of where i am now, just started with my third skein(6 more to go), I can't wait to see the final product :)
Meanwhile, just in time for the holidays knitting season begins, i am almost done writing my snowflake fair isle mittens pattern. Stay Tuned.
