Hi this is Eric from Singapore, I am a guy and I do knit ^^ although I do agree not many guys does at least not in Singapore. I am one of the rare few there is haha...

I haven't been at it for long, pick up basic knitting techniques from the video clips uploaded on youtube and since then I have been doing scarves. Have been wanting to try on hats but failed everytime I do. The decreasing portion when u are near the top of the hat is just hard to handle. Maybe I haven't practice hard enough.

Well lately I have just started a simple blog for myself (http://guythatknits.blogspot.com/) so here it is check it out and leave your comments. Hope to know more people from the world of knits and yarns ^^ See you there.

Welcome, Eric! People here are very generous with their time and knitting knowledge, you've come to the right place! I love the banner on your blog, too! Great scarf!

Welcome Eric - I just learned to do "Magic Loop" and solved my "unable to do hats" problem. Should be some videos on youtube. Give it a shot. Also there is a spot here for left-handed knitters. Look under Knitting Talk and you will find the thread.

Welcome to the forum Eric. I do see few guys who knit here. And I've seen one guy knitter who does mean lace!

As for hat, you need DPNs or magic loop or 2 circular needles for the decrease if you are knitting in circles. Otherwise, just do flat and join.
