I've read of men who came back from WWI and WWII who found gardening to be healing. I think knitting does much the same thing. I'm so glad that they got this opportunity.

These ladies should remind the men that knitting was first done by men, but, of course, once they try it, they seem to really like it.

Thanks for posting! Interesting read.

Rosie Grier, the great football player, did needle point.
Good to read about guys knitting.

Just love it when I see (other) men knit. And by men a mean real men, not ones that look like Tarzan and sound like Jane.
