Everyone is wondering where I have been this weekend. I have been knitting. It’s kind of become an obsession. And there is a half price sale on yarn at Michael’s. Goodness—this spells trouble. I found a book about men knitting called “Knitting with Balls,” and some of the best knitters I see online are male. So today I am a male knitter.
The needles are put away. Our guy came up with this great sweater. Some of the best knitters are I know are male so this pattern would have been no difficulty. (The truth is that Floatie Hock made this terrific sweater. Just play along with me here.) His jeans are manly work jeans from Callie Cline, who knows what she likes in men.
Our guy’s skin is an exclusive at the Euphoria sim and a new offering from Brox Riaxik. With its very defined features, it’s not malleable to just any shape but once you find the right one, it’s a great look and you won’t run around looking like every other guy. I really like the eyebrows and the whisker work, and his eyes are beautifully expressive. My scarf is woven by Tyr Rozenblum–not knitted but the skull cap is something our guy whipped up while he was laid up with rugby injuries (dude is manly—really!). Cocoro Lemon provided the pattern and the yarn.
My favorite male knitter—Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed:
