I wish I could see more of these--> :guyknitting: :inlove:

Personally I LOVE finding guys who knit. I think it makes them sexier. :flirt: And so much easier to talk to! :woot:

I met one at work yesterday! An older gentleman came in with his wife to ask about macrame and sometime during the convo I mentioned to him that I use youtube to view knitting videos and he mentioned that his mother taught him to knit when he was "that high" (very young, in other words).

I rarely go anywhere to knit so you probably won't see me.

You need to talk to Mason. He's a cool guy who knits! He'll probably see your post and reply.

Knitters with the 'y' chromosme are more common then you might think.

Where is Mason, anyway? Has anyone heard from him recently? :?? I haven't seen any postings from him since I don't know how long. Or have I just not seen them?

He was stuck in Wyoming I believe waiting out a snow storm. That was several days ago.

Mason got out of the storm (we're having 70 here now) and delivered his load. When he's on the road he doesn't post much unless he gets stuck by weather or breakdowns, or waiting for a load.

Hi, saw your inquiry. We aren't dead just busy, busy, busy, :guyknitting::frog:
I have recently taken up knitting and have a few FO's under my belt.

Sure wish I could get my dh interested in knitting.... for one thing it would give us something to do together and for another - I bet he wouldn't be so bored all the time.
He won't even consider it.:shrug:
Men used to knit - in the beginning...

Not only do I knit but I was taught to knit by another male knitter among others. He was taught to knit by his grandmother.

I agree. My husband likes watching me knit though...he finds it fascinating. I "taught" him how to crochet, and after that, he wasn't so amazed anymore. Perhaps I prefer the fascination?? :)

We male knitters are alive and well. I can't speak for all of us but I can be found knitting in bars, saloons, and truck stops all around the country :mrgreen:

Do other guys give you grief about knitting?

Many of my co-workers were aware that I crocheted, (and now knit). They haven't given me grief, I've actually received a lot of positive comments.

Ravelry has a men's group with 113 members, plus a number of local men's knitting groups (Denver, London....).

My knitting and spinning groups on Ravelry all have males actively participating.

A number of excellent knitting blogs are also run by men. Among them: Brooklyn Tweed (Jared Flood) and The Panopticon (Franklin Habit).

Not usually but I did recently slug one for being especially rude about it.

Lets see I carry my knitting most places I go and knit when I stop for more than a few moments. However, since I stand 6 foot 1 inch and weight 289 pounds few give me a problem. It is interesting to be knitting in public while wearing my kilt. But who will give a guy trouble for knitting in public when he has a knife in his hand knit hose. :roflhard:

I'm not a little fellow either and don't normally get much crap about it.

I must say I am jealous-- I'm 5'3" ish. I do, however, know how to radiate waves of "**** OFF." And I take self-defense, and know bits and pieces of three different styles of martial arts. :3 :biting: :angelgrin: :teehee:

My 83-year old Dad still knits. He lives in a retirement home and refuses to join the knitting group of ladies who meet each week. BUt I think it's because he doesn't want to offend my Mom, who has lost the use of her right arm. She was the knitter.

I just taught my boyfriend to knit (after learning just 2 weeks before). Youre right it does give us something to talk about or do if we don't want to spen the money on a date! Get a boy and then turn him is what I say!

I see a book here - "Guys who knit and the women that love them; He knits for her" - Now if only I could write and had a bunch of patterns to include.

That would be awesome... The problem with that though wouldn't be turning a boy but getting him in the first place. :wall:

Look at the woman and envision the line on the neck as the mouth of an older woman. The young womans chin is the older woman's nose.

Oh don't say that! Maybe the next tim youre at the lks you'll catch some hunk's eye! ;)

Hasn't happened yet. I found one guy in my class who seems to be an island of sanity. And he's NOT. INTERESTED. AT ALL. I think it hasn't even dawned on him yet that I'm interested. Why is it that at this age being not-that-feminine wins you a free chastity belt???
