What do you call a group of men knitting?

Friends, just like you would if it were women or even children. Even grown men can have "play dates".

Good luck on your poll - I think you are right - women have the stitch & bitch the men should have something too.

I think it is sooo cool that men knit. I started to teach my 10 year old son how to knit and I showed him KH and all the men who knit. He thought it was cool.

Have a good one - happy knitting
Give a to your 10 yo son. And thanks for the heads up to the rest of us that 10 year olds may see our post.

It's just that....
maybe I don't know the right men...
but the ones I do know, knitters included...
are pretty civilized...
and don't spend their time (at least not all their time)
belching and farting and scratching and being slobs.
Even when they're with other men.
As I said, maybe I don't know the right men.
On the contrary, sounds like you know the right men!
