Just curious-- any male knitters, here?
I hear about this species, but have never spotted one in its natural habitat? Any nesting here at KH?

I agree mason, it's just unheard of.

I finally met, in person, my first male knitter at a LYS near where I work. I was so excited! And he was a darn good knitter, too. Him and his wife have own thier store since the 60s!

I guess I should have been prepared for some cute answers. And should have rephrased the question-- Anyone here who dates women? Glad to see there's a varied crew here-- keeps things interesting. But it's funny-- I've never met any adult males who knit, but some young boys, children of friends of mine who do-- without apology or self-consciousness! It's great. Considering it was a male profession a few centuries ago, you all should be reclaiming your territory!.
