I love this video. Jose displays the patience and joy aroused from knitting. I read somewhere (I forgot where) that knitting was at first a male dominant occupation, especially among fishermen.

With the child, he must have also had other interests besides knitting. As an old fart, I already catch enough static for sittin' down to pee; ain't gonna' start knittin'.

I bought one of his hats and it leaked during the last big snow storm. He wouldn't give me a refund or sew the hole back together.

Yeah, that's one of the drawbacks of knit hats.

don't listen to this "Frank" dude. I seriously think he gets his jollies from pissing people off on the internet. He is all over motorcycle post on this site bitching and moaning. this guy doesn't sell his hats so he is obviously lying.

Frank, please just go outside for once and interact with people face to face.

Either way I think its a great thing to learn
seriously

Good for you, Jose! I especially like the fish hat. It's refreshing to see a young man taking the time to learn a skill and channeling his creativity into something positive and useful.

PLEASE leave Frank alone. He is my neighbor and a real gentleman. I ALSO told him to "shut up" the other night. He misunderstood me and "stood up". I hit him up long side the head with a crowbar. Then the guy in the third trailer below ours ran him down with his racin' John Deere ridin' mower (mowin' blades in full motion). Frank now has a huge gash
in his head, but not nearly as large a gash as his old lady has.

That's funny because I take time to make my hats and guarantee the quality of them. I don't even know who the heck this Frank is and he definitely doesn't need to get out the house, he needs to stay in lol :)

First off Jose, you shouldn't be writing this crap at work; do you also knit at work. You must work on the line at Harley if you have this much spare time during work hours.
Once more, with love: Your ISP assigns a city/state to your name. I live in York, PA but they assign MOSCOW, PA to me. I love it, makes me look like a communist and I didn't even vote for oBOMBo!

no, I work at a non-profit organization where all the customers love my hats and that Haley comment is not very funny as I know many people who work for them and they're going through many hardships because of it. Maybe you should grow a sense of sympathy and lose that sense of "humor" because there are people out there who need all the help they can get n you're not helping any with those comments. And for that matter, you might as well be communist if u didn't vote for Obama because he is trying to do a lot of good for this country and its people like you who are not letting him do so. Shame on you
