study on men who knit ???

Has anyone else responded to the call for participants by Ann Morneau?

She claims:" The aim of my study is to convey the
stories and experiences of men who knit. My area of specialization in
gender studies is masculinity, so the research will focus on men's
experiences in an activity that is still socially gendered as a "female"
activity. "

I'm doing "housekeeping" on my MMarioKKnits yahoo group -
going through and catching up on my directory listing of patterns
correcting and updating patterns

So far I have managed to work my way through 3/4rths of one page out of 6.5 pages of listing. And have some patterns to add to the list that aren't on there yet!

Then I actually have to do the work...

*phew* I hate paperwork!
