That's pretty awesome.  It's interesting to see what guys would knit for themselves, iykwim?  Rather than what they would wear if a chick knitted for them.

Thanks for posting it (and I agree with everyone about the elephant, it's gorgeous! Cheesy)

I support Breast Cancer Awareness.  Do you?

I live in Germany right now (stationed with the Army) and what's scary is some guys here might still be wearing these. (my german boss loves his black socks and sandles)

So awesome! I love the cover picture, and I'm so confused by the sweater above the elephant sweater--is that a small dog humping a large dog? Attacking a large dog? What??


I think it's like a momma dog and a baby dog, but you can never be sure. Cheesy

Maybe a pair of bears? Mom and baby? Although now I can't get the dogs humping outta my head....

Same here. I think they're bears, though.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

my dad was a knitting man,too.
i found the pullovers he made, they are, well seventiesque and he also made things for me when i was small.

I agree with vinnie451 still today the sandaly+ socks + selfmade wool pullover has its wearers. Or cardigans dont you love those ?

and the elephant ist so sweet.

Awwwww, that's so sweet that he made things for you.

What kinds of things did he make? You should post pics.

I love that top picture so much (of the men knitting between the goal posts).  Immediately after i saw it i saved it on my computer and made it my background and i never said thank you.  So thank you sooo much for sharing it.  Sorry its so belated.  The picture makes me smile everytime I turn my computer on!!

My favourite! I have this book, and I admit that I bought it and kept it just for this article! By the way, the Lorenz Lorenz guy who made the only real ugly thing, the green and yellow sweater, wanting to be artistic and superdifferent but in my opinion just didn't get the hang of it and did the wise move to embrace his mistakes Smiley, is actually an artist today. He is a musician, has just released a record that got a review in my newspaper that sounded quite promising, and I read it and thought: isn't that the knitting guy Smiley I was told by a friend he is some kind of local celebrity in Munich.
One of the other guys said he wanted to become a fashion designer, I'd like to know if he did. His knitting is so perfect.
@Jolyon: I'd love to have that picture too and I am just too lazy preoccupied to join the two scans. Could you share it please?
