Men knitting

Somewhere (I think it was on this site) there was a link to an article about men knitting. I can't find it now....

But I wrote to the writer of the article for her obvious and blatant omission of not mentioning our group! This is what I got in response:

"I had so much to say and not enough space in which to say it. The important thing is to make men more aware that it’s not just a woman’s craft and that there are lots of guys out there doing beautiful work and enjoying it."

Well, maybe next time.

It was a link I posted I believe - the article from Hamilton Ontario? I also wrote the author just to tell her thank you for writing on the topic, and this is what she responded:

Thanks for writing, Frank. Glad to hear that you liked the story so well that you posted it on I think it’s fantastic that so many men are taking up the craft and that the ones who’ve been doing it for years are coming out! I think if we all knit, the world would be a gentler, more peaceful place.

The article is here.

Nice responses from the author. Our craft/art/obsession is definitely catching on. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
