Does Debbie Stoller know that men exist?

Okay, she obviously does because she published "Son of Stitch'n Bitch", there are pictures of men knitting at Stitch'n Bitch groups in her books, there's that guy on the cover of "Stitch'n Bitch Nation", and she does mention the fact that men knit.

I just got "Stitch'n Bitch: A Knitter's Design Journal" from a GUY at work (he's actually in Sacramento) and I love it... it's great and has a lot of cool stuff in it. However, there are about 80 pages of "Design Pages" - "to sketch out sweater ideas using a variety of dress-up dolls. Choose the doll with the body type that's most similar to yours (or the person you are knitting for)."

Every page has a female doll, complete with bra and panties... just waiting to receive her sweater. I thought maybe she'd have a few pages with a male doll... what about the male dolls who don't have sweaters, huh?

Visit Crafty Andy's Blog It is always amaze me that there are so many women stuff, there is the book Son of the Stitch And Bitch which I believe is men Patterns, maybe that one has Male dolls. You would think that in this day and age, 2008 that women will be all inclusive. Remember to vote with a letter and your money. Besides a sweater has no gender in my opinion lol!

Son of Stitch 'n' Bitch doesn't have dolls in it, let alone male dolls. I just got it for Christmas from my sister. :-)

And you have opened it already???? Bad boy. :-)


So....that begs the question --- Why aren't men writing and publishing their own design journals, etc? Certainly there's no lack of talent to do so.....

I've been less impressed with each book that DS has published. I really enjoyed SnB; thought SnB Nation was alright; Son of SnB I was totally unimpressed and thought most of it was exceedingly trendy or just plain ugly.

My biggest problem with all knitting books published right now is that every one of them is operating as though this is the first knitting book I ever bought. Can I get something that isn't the basics appealing to the lowest common denominator?
