That is so cool!! My DH will never knit either. He prefers golf and doing wood work. I'm hoping he's finally getting around to changing his mind about thinking that knitting & crocheting is only for grannies. Lots of my friends who are my age knit and lots of teens knit too. I can't even imagine him sitting on the couch knitting with me or going through patterns together! LOL But it's so cool to know that there are men who appreciate this hobby as much as we do.

Nah, I'll just give him all the gray acrylic I have, it's his favorite color. I taught him with the gray also since I didn't want him practicing with my cotton, which I'm using up quickly for my dishcloths.

He doesn't do footfall unless it's the soccer kind but he does watch TV so he thought it would be good to be doing something usefull at the same time. My dh cooks, cleans, will help with dishes and laundry and sews; what more could I ask for

I talk a lot about this forum and that there are several guys that knit and/or crochet, we all think it's great.

My hubby asked if I'd show him a few weeks ago. (He's getting tired of waiting on me to make that Doctor Who scarf I think.) He had no trouble learning to cast on but when he turned to start kntting he always wanted to pull the needles apart, which stretched the yarn loose, which made the whole thing not work so well. He finally got frustrated and said his fingers were too big :P I think I'll get some bulky yarn and let him try on the US 15s and see if it's easier for him.

I wouldn't mind a trip to Alaska - maybe someday in the next ???

I'll have to take dh with me sometime yarn shopping and see what happens. He may get more ideas and want to buy more yarn than I do. I'll have to be careful.

My dh is very impatient so he wants nothing to do with knitting or using a computer. Now if it is mechanical or wood work he is interested. Oh well!!! I will just keep on knitting myself.
