Guys Crocheting.
I think that it is pretty cool and sweet that some guys are knitting and crocheting.
What do you guys think about it.

I love to knit and crochet, I think that if more guys would just stop being afraid of "looking girly" then there would be just about as many men as women on this website

I agree Maleknitter. I have purchased little needles for my son last year and he knits a few line when he can be bothered but he enjoys it.
What is wrong with doing something that creates such lovely things and also keeps the mind working.

The constraints of society often baffle me. It wasn't that long ago that men were the only ones that did the knitting... Women didn't start doing it until after the world war began, from memory. Now if men get "caught" knitting or crocheting, they are considered "girly"... go figure! LOL

There was nothing unusual in a guy knitting up until (roughly) WWI - and many men in the armed services, or men who had solitary jobs were known for their knitting up until WWII - then somehow, it became a "feminine" thing.

My confession: I am a little afraid that my DH will become way better than me if he picks up the needles. But then again, that way he could help me if I get stuck.

But anyway, men crocheting seems normal to me because my uncle always crocheted. Still does.
