Just curious....are there any men on this board? the "stereotype" thread got me thinking....
knitting is also stereotypical of little old LADIES....not men.

SIL was telling me she is in this knitting group or soemthing like ah and there is a mens knitting group! i think that is awesome!!

Don't forget Codiferous! Cody is an overacheiving high schooler from all accounts, we haven't heard from him in a bit. And then, I think, there's also loofnicnad, but he only shows up ocassionally.

That's AWESOME! When did he learn? Did YOU teach him?

No guys in my family knit, but some crochet. I taught my dad last summer, but he stopped after five months. My brother(who is 19), wants to learn how to crochet, but I don't think he's really 'up to it'.

But it's great to know that guys are on here and that they knit! :D

I watched something on TV one time about theres a knitting place somewhere in NY, its like a club where a bunch of people(men and women) get together and knit and make funky things. It's honestly great that guys knit AND crochet. :)

I have arrived! I am Aidan, resident male crocheter. I admit, knitting only interests me in theory. Though I did knit a ribbed scarf that is about 12 feet long. That has been my big accomplishment with knitting. Well, that and a few tiny socks.

Nope HE taught ME. :roflhard: I just couldn't get the hang of it. He's very handy. He does woodworking. So I asked for his help. He watched the videos, watched what I was doing, but we couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. So he learned. Showed me what was wrong and has been knitting since.

What's funny is watching him knit while watching Nascar or Football. :rofling: :rofling:

Hi JGM,

Glad you're here too!!

Femmi,

When I looked at that blog, I think the second to the bottom hat was Shedir. In brown with a Celtic look to it? If that's the one you wanted, it's the Shedir pattern from knitty.com. It really is beautiful!!

Gonna have to make another hat...another hat...another hat.
How many can you wear at one time? :??

That's TOO AWESOME! And, shame on ME for assuming that it was the female half that would do the teaching!

I saw a man KIP at the library today. He looked very serious. No one seemed to be paying him any mind though. Whihc is good. Seeing men KIP is no bug deal :cheering:

wewantmore,
my husband also taught me. I have very little patience and could not get the hang of it. He took the book and figured out knit and purl sts then showed me. After he figured out how it works he was bored though.

I, too, was previously mentioned. I knit quite often. it depends really what is going on. My wife crochets, and I taught her how to knit.

I looked on knitty and I couldn't find it. Is it one of them surpises they do on KNitty? cuz I didn't see it in the archive :thinking:

Hi femmi,

It took me a while to find that pattern too. :rollseyes:

It's in the special Breast Cancer Awareness issue of Knitty. The patterns from that issue don't come up in the pattern archive, but if you scroll down the "Issue" row in the archive you'll see the special PDF issue of Knitty. The Shedir pattern is in there. If you still can't find it, PM me and I'll photocopy the issue and mail it to you. :thumbsup:

I really want to knit that hat, but I'm up to my elbows (or eyebrows) in sweaters right now!

Happy Knitting :XX: :XX:
