Guy Charbonneau le gars qui tricote

Guy Charbonneau has been knitting for more than 45 years. Watching his mother knitting, he was fascinated by the fact that one could make something with only two knitting needles and a piece of yarn. Since then, his passion for knitting has grown steadily. For the past few years, he has been knitting mostly socks and he makes instructional videos that explain how to do it. In 2007, he created his website (www.legarsquitricote.com), hoping that other men would join the rank of knitters. For him, knitting is a great way to reduce stress, whether you're a guy or a girl! In addition to knitting, Guy spins his own yarn and also enjoys weaving. He regularly gives knitting classes. He enjoys sharing his passion and knowledge.
