Men and shawls: Who said we can't?

"Who said we can't?" Clementine Shawlette, modelled par moi

Finished: 09th June 2007
Needles: 3 mm / 60 cm Inox circs
Yarn: Rohrspatz & Wollmeise sock yarn, "Drachenblut"
Pattern: Clementine Shawlette by Michele Rose Orne from Interweave KNITS Spring 2007

Okay, just to prove my point, here it is: My recently FO'ed Clementine Shawlette, modelled par moi!

Srsly though, I won't be going around outside like that, but I keep the shawl close to me at home (not on my shoulders, as it does get too warm with the temperature around here being at 22 centigrades / 71 fahrenheit at the moment).

I'm sure that I'll probably regret putting this up at the KU-Site. *LOL*

Have great week, y'all!

Well, if you want to wear it, wear it. But if it was pink, I might give you a strange look. But what ever floats your boat.

You look fabulous... but to answer the poll question posed on the podcast, I don't like shawls on guys, other than those they knit themselves. And this is coming from a homo knitter/sychronized swimmer who's in the closet about the modified (meaning, skinny) Clapotis he's finishing up this week. I'll post about it on my blog. (and, yes, I plan on wearing the Clap in public, but more rolled up in a gay Euro scarf kind of way--you know what I mean...)

Love the podcast! Hope you're all still going in 2010 when my synchro team is coming for Gay Games!

Okay. I didn't really love the idea when I heard about it, but I really like it on you. But you might just single handedly bring in the shawl for guys. It's very nice. I think it's about the colors and the whole ensemble.

I say give it a try and see what kind of comments you get. Of course your with a European crowd there. You're not in Alabama. So figure that in your results.

Those colours are definitely manly enough for a man-shawl.
