I’m a gay man, married, Canadian, living in Vancouver, British Columbia. I have been knitting for a very long time, but only in the past five years have I been devoting much of my leisure time to its practice. I knit socks, sweaters, hats, even a scarf or two, and I’ve put my hand happily to lace as well.
I’m a proud member of the Gay Lesbian, Bi and Trans KnitList and hang out there lots. I also am a member of Ravelry as Knitknigel, of course. I’m also a member of our local West Coast Knitters’ Guild which meets monthly. In the winter months, I’ve been known to be away from home, and often without my knitting, although I miss it. It’s challenging to pack a small backpack for three months of travel and carry enough yarn and needles to satisfy my needs, so I leave them at home. They wait for me happily there.
