I imagine there are still people who see grandma in the rocking chair with a ball of yarn, knitting needles and a cat in her lap, but I have been astounded at the number of young people who love to knit. I am thrilled they have taken up this hobby.
Now, I AM an old lady and I knit, though I actually learned when I was 13 and in 4H, so I guess I am the stigma, but never a word comes from my kids or grandkids about me being an old lady knitter. They like getting the goodies I make for them too much!
On another note, we used to have a great big beautiful Grand Marquis. Our dd told us when we bought it she knew we were old now because we had a big a** car and a little dog (we have a yorkie)
