I picked up on the male-ness in your first post - my son's wife is a knitter, so he decided he could do this but naturally (being male<g>) had to start off with a "challenge" - so did a neckwarmer using 4 double-pointed needles (dpn's). Aside from the predictable problems with that for a brand-new knitter - HIS hobby is fishing and he's been fly-tying for years - you can imagine the grip he put on the yarn, lol, his neckwarmer is more like chain armour from the Middle Ages. Get some bigger needles, and have fun - I see people flying those planes down near the beach, it looks like a wonderful hobby!
@suzeeq, I am a male LMAO.
It's the 21st century men knit and sew now as well.[/quote]
