Great episode! I love the sock yarn club. Very interesting. I can't wait to see which of the sweaters you make.

Phoebe said...

I just finished viewing my first ever knitting videocast. It was awesome and thanks for the heads up on the Sock club...extremely reasonable!

OMG Charles, you make me want to have fall arrive earlier, and summer just started. Lots of nice fall colours, and great men's sweater (hubby likes the Hero Pullover).

I really enjoyed your compilation of runway shots of men's fall knit fashion. I'll give a head's up to my boyfriend about the trend towards longer sweaters and wider necklines.

Thanks for commenting on my blog (It's, I'm just using my Google account to comment on Blogspot.)

I love the fall men's runway fashions you highlighted. And thanks, but no thanks for linking to that Sock Club. As if I need more sock yarn!

I'll add you on Ravelry, I'm languidly on there.
