Blip, Trend Or Coin Toss?

What a pleasant surprise to me. I followed a lead on the web for a tool I want to cut leather lacing, and much to my astonishment, I discovered that was marketing signups to it's site using the inducement of a free ebook of men's patterns.

Maybe this is old news. Maybe I just leave an electronic trail of testosterone. Or the cookies on my computer reek of male knitting? Or perhaps, oh, no....could they really be...what a actually trying to see if there is a market for knitting patterns that interest men and those who knit for them????!!!

How clever. How original. How interesting. How smart. How DELICIOUS!

I'd say trend... hopefully.

To some extent that probably depends on what patterns are *IN* the e-book.

Anyone looked at it yet? (I can't - as the site is blocked as they offer "media downloads"....).

MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation

Funny that they're all written by women. More power to them though!!! :-)

I joined Knitting Daily when they first started. I have to say that I don't go there very much...MWK fits my needs so much better as far as a knitting community goes. Still, I don't think I'll drop it as it is a resource. Even if I am a "thorn among roses". {Edit - I must add that they do try to offer patterns for men on a fairly regular basis.} -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
