Guy knitters
I was just curious as to how much of a minority I was here. I'm male. I knit. Just wondering how many other guys there are here as well. My sister seems to think that I'm the only guy she knows that knits, but I'm sure she has to know others. There have to be closet male knitters out there somewhere. Not me though. I wear my knits and purls loud and proud.

There's about 5 or 6, or maybe even more guys who knit and post here.

Oh yeah, lots of male knitters here. Let's see..here's a few active guy knitters.. Mike, OffJumpsJack, Jeremy, AlbertPollard, cacunn, Knitting Guy, MMario, SteveDallas, Braden, and more I can't think of offhand or who aren't as active as others.

There are a couple at my LYS, too.

Because guys make the better knitters we try to keep a low profile so as not to embarrass the ladies around here.

But don't worry, they only let me out once a months so they can clean the padded walls.

That's ok - as long as they don't let us both out at the same time I think it will work!

Then outside of this forum there are well known male knitters such as Jarad Flood. http://brooklyntweed.blogspot.com/ He is a photographer who knits and just came out with his own book of designs.
And Franklin Habit http://the-panopticon.blogspot.com/ the author of It Itches. He also happens to do photography.
Then there is Kaffe Fassett http://www.kaffefassett.com/Home.html who has been knitting and designing for years and years and is well known for his bright use of color.

That's only a few non-closet male knitters that are out there.
