I'm glad to know that while knitters fit into many of his categories, it sounds like we're not snipers.

Dood! It's about the authenticity and nostalgia ... plus .. I am not cool enough, nor do I have the moola, for a Wii.

Another tattooed, video-gaming knitter here. We just bought a Wii (even though I'd been looking, 2 weeks ago was the first time I actually saw one in a store) and yes, it is sooo much fun. I want to get the Zelda: Twilight Princess game, but I told myself it would be my reward for when I finally got EVERYTHING unpacked.

No Tattoo's... ( And I don't want one. ) I'm 50..

I started knitting when I was about 10, then found better things to do. LOL

Then I started knitting again wehn I found out I could make money at it. Then quit again.

And now I'm knitting AGAIN! And ENJOY it just for knitting!

The microsurge in knitting among teens? It represents a turning away from the prevalent online obsession of most young Americans. “People are looking for new outlets of self-expression,” says Penn. “There is a premium on individuality that is rapidly rising.”
i am not a teen knitter, but seriously, do they know how many knitters are online?? I also like how they correlated the rise in sales of fashion yarn to teen knitters.... bucket of fun fur anyone?

I'm a 20 something, Wii owning, knitter with no tattoos unfortunately, but only because my mom would disown me. There's that Jewish cemetary thing too.

Let's just say that knitters now have a lot more voting power. BOO-YAH!

Who wants to advocate for more tax breaks for knitters?
